SU Guests/Visitors Printing

Creating a Guest Printing Account

All guest printing accounts and balances will expire after the end of Syracuse University’s Summer Session II and before the beginning of the Fall semester every year (usually the last 3 weeks in August). Absolutely no refunds will be provided by the university for any remaining balance left on your printing account when it expires.

1. Open a web browser and go to and click on the bottom Register as a New User link.

2. Fill out the form and click Register.

3. Open your email account and look for an email asking to verify your email address. You’ll need to click on the link in that email to verify and activate your printing account.

4. Login with your newly created account. Select the Add funds (CASHNET) tab and proceed to instantly add funds to your account with a credit card before printing for the first time.

Funds cannot be added with cash, the university currently only allows guest account transactions via credit card.

Funds are only required for printing, scanning is free on all public copiers/scanners using this guest account.
