OneCard Uses

Computer Lab Printing

Computer labStudent OneCard ID's are used for printing in the NIU computer labs and in classes on the DeKalb campus. When a student prints a document, it is sent to a print queue and waits for the student to swipe his/her OneCard ID and costs are deducted from his/her print allotment. This incredibly convenient feature allows students to print from remote locations and be sure that the print job will be at the lab when he/she arrives to pick it up. View lab locations and hours.

Once you have used up the funds in your print allotment account, you will need to use Huskie Bucks for any future printing. Printing charges will automatically roll over to be deducted from an existing Huskie Bucks Account with funds in it. If you have not opened one, you will need to do so before submitting your print job. Note: Printing with Huskie Bucks from your personal laptop or computer will also require you to install the Anywhere - Anytime Printing program.
