Each student starts with $15.00 of printing credits. Depending if the page is in color or black/white or if it is a duplex page will determine cost. Your money will go back into the budget that pays for the printer maintenance and supplies. Your tuition only covers $15.00 of printing per semester; additional printing credits can be purchased at the campus business office.

Printers do malfunction from time to time, but if you get an unusable printout for any reason, please bring the questionable pages to the IIT Helpdesk (Rm 1719) and we will inspect them for a possible account credit. Otherwise we will assume the print was successful.

You can check your balance by going to http://papercut.fox.uwc.edu:9191. This will ONLY work if you are on campus. For more information on papercut please view our PaperCut Tutorial

It is your responsibility to monitor your account and to purchase more pages at the Business Office when you see it is getting low. However, if for some reason you cannot, such as the Business Office is closed, stop down at the IIT Helpdesk for assistance.

Digital Signage (VBBS)

The Digital Signage system at UWFox exists to inform UWFox students and staff and visitors to the campus about campus related events or activities.   Non-campus events will not be posted.  Events held by off campus groups but held on the UWFox campus are acceptable.

A VBBS tutorial and template can be found here.


  • Remember digital signage is like a billboard along the highway.  Viewers have only a few seconds to glance at, read, and comprehend all the content presented.  Too much content is a problem.  Rarely will people stop and read it.  Less is more.
  • Think headlines. Complete sentences are rarely necessary.
  • Remember content is visible to a wide range of audiences of all ages and backgrounds.  Good taste matters.
  • Content should be submitted to fox-helpdesk@uwc.edu at least 24 hours prior to the event.  Please allow sufficient time for review and the possible return of content to submitters if revisions are necessary.
  • Along with the content to be posted, identify the beginning and ending day of the content.  Typically the end date is the day of the event.  (e.g.  “January 1 through January 8”).
  • Content may be submitted as far in advance as you like.  The system has the ability to house but not display content until the specified begin show date/time occurs.
  • Details about events may also be submitted to fox-helpdesk so that help desk personnel will create slides for you.  If you go this route, help desk will send you a slide for approval prior to posting on the digital signage system.  Please allow sufficient time for creation/approval/revisions.
  • UWFox reserves the right to modify, or to ask submitter to modify submitted content. UWFox also reserves the right to reject submitted content. 
  • UWFox reserves the right to program content to appear on specific days/times.
  • UWFox reserves the right to immediately suspend these guidelines and/or displayed content in the event of an emergency.
