General Information

LSU on-campus printing is available from a lab computer or from your laptop or mobile device. Large-format and specialty printing is available at the ITS Print Desk, located on the 1st floor of the LSU Library, in room 141 next to the ITS Service Desk. The Library's main computer lab is located on the first floor of LSU Library, turn left when you walk into the library. There is also a computer lab on the second floor in room 241 and at the Patrick F. Taylor Building in room 1350.

Print Services includes the Pay-for-Print systems in the ITS Computer Labs and other locations across campus. These are printers and print job release stations managed by ITS. Print your documents in the lab and use your Tiger Card or Geaux Card to pay for the printouts by using the release stations next to the printers.

Jobs are held for 90 minutes.
