Colorado State University (CSU) is considering an alternative method for managing its campus computer labs while additionally adding a system of pay-to-print kiosks around the university, according to The Rocky Mountain Collegian.
Managed through the print software PaperCut, the centralized pay-to-print system enables students to send documents remotely to the designated kiosks located all over campus and swipe their ID card to retrieve them.
“Computer labs really are on the way out,” said Zach Lund, the director of intra-university computer labs, about the potential change. “A lot of the people that are coming into our labs are coming in to print and not to study.”
