How to Use BroncoPrint

Print from any public campus computer, or see below for instructions on how to configure your laptop to wirelessly print.

To release your print job from any campus BroncoPrint station, swipe your Boise State student ID card or use your Boise State username and password at the printer.

When you use BroncoPrint from your laptop to print, enter your Boise State username and a document title or description. The system then displays the number of pages to be printed, the cost per page for the selected printer and the total cost for the print job. You may elect to continue, or cancel the job.

Next, swipe your Boise State student ID card at a touch screen monitor next to the printer. The screen displays the print job(s) to be printed, then displays your remaining balance, in addition to the cost of the jobs.

Print Wirelessly from Your Laptop

Laptop users must be logged into the eduroam wireless network with their Boise State username & password.

When ready to print, select “BroncoPrint” from your list of available printers, and then enter your Boise State username, and a name for the print job. The system will then notify you of the print job’s cost, and prompt for approval or cancellation.

Once the job is approved, it will remain in the system for up to two hours. If the job is not printed within two hours, it will be purged from the system.

Choose your operating system and install wireless print software below.



You must download and install two pieces of software, Notify and Popup.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bronco Card Print Funds

How do I add additional print funds to my Bronco Card?

You can check your BroncoPrint balance on your Bronco Card through myBoiseState.

Log in to myBoiseState and go to your My Account tab. You can add money to your card through myBoiseState ($5.00 minimum) using a credit or debit card.

How much does it cost to print?

Black & White:

  • Simplex (single sided): $0.08 to print B&W on a single side of paper
  • Duplex (double sided): $0.14 to print B&W on both sides of paper ($0.07 per single side when printing both sides)


  • Simplex (single sided): $0.20 to print color on a single side of paper
  • Duplex (double sided): $0.36 to print color on both sides of paper

Can I get a refund for my unused print funds at the end of the semester?

While your free printing quota is represented in the BroncoPrint system as a monetary value, it really represents a maximum service level of printing resources.

The quota was calculated based upon average printing usage, which takes into account that some students print more and some print less.

Consequently, no refunds will be given for unused printing quota at the end of a semester, nor will the unused portion of a quota be forwarded to a future semester.

What if I lose my Bronco Card?

If you don’t have your card, you can print and release jobs by entering your Boise State username and password at the release station.

Using BroncoPrint

How do I select black and white or color printing?

To print in black and white, select the BlackAndWhite on PEARLCREEK2 option from the Printer dropdown list.

To print in color, select the Color on PEARLCREEK2 option from the Printer dropdown list.

Black and white and color print jobs can be released at any BroncoPrint printer.

What about large format or 3D printing?

A large format plotter printer and 3D printer are available for use in the Albertsons Library MakerLab.

Are my print jobs private?

You must swipe your ID card at the Print Release Station or enter your username and password to see the print jobs you sent to the system.

You will not be able to see the jobs of other users, nor will you be able to print the jobs of other users.

Who can use BroncoPrint?

Students who are currently registered for the current semester with at least one academic credit may use the BroncoPrint system.

Students who meet this criteria will be given a quota of free printing. Students who do not meet this criteria are not eligible to use BroncoPrint system and will not be given a free quota of printing. The only exception to this is for patrons of the Albertsons Library at Boise State, where the general public is welcome.

Members of the general public may purchase a separate card from a vending machine to use for printing while in the Library.
