Brandeis WhoCash is the preferred method of payment and can be purchased online or in the Campus Card office in Kutz. WhoCash can be used for printing and photocopying in the Goldfarb Information Commons, the Shapiro Campus Center, Heller, and IBS.

For guests without WhoCash, there is one coin-operated Xerox machine that accepts both coins and bills on the first level of the Farber library. Guests must save the items that they would like to print on a flash drive as PDFs.

Printing Instructions for Users with WhoCash

Using WhoCash to pay for printing is simple and easy.

  1. When you are ready to print, choose File/Print or press Ctrl + P or click on the Print button of your application.
  2. Choose the print options according to your need: number of copies, pages, pages per sheet, etc. and click OK when you are done. The printers print double-sided by default, but this may be changed using options in the print menu. Make sure to choose the correct printer: "Brandeis-student-bw-print" for black and white or "Brandeis-student-color-print" for color.  
  3. When the popup appears, enter your Brandeis UNet username and password (used for Brandeis Gmail, sage, LATTE, etc.). If you have a WhoCard, but no Brandeis username, please type in the ID number on your card.
  4. Swipe your card at the card swipe located on the left of the Xerox printer. If you don't have your card, enter your UNet and password on the screen.
  5. Choose print release to access jobs sent from computers or device functions to access photocopier functions. 
  6. A list of printing jobs under your UNet will appear. Make sure you have a valid WhoCash balance on your card, then choose all the printing jobs you want to print.
  7. Remember to log out of the machine when you are done.
Where and how can I refill my WhoCash for printing?

Undergraduate students and graduate students can refill WhoCash by visiting the Campus Card Office in Kutz for printing. Card Office staff require your ID number, and your debit plan will be made available to you immediately. You can also add money online with a credit card.
