Wepa Cloud Printing

UC Riverside’s Information Technology Solutions (ITS) recently installed four printers to provide a cloud printing service through Wepa, a print management solution developed specifically for student printing in higher education and university settings.

Two printers are located on the first floor of Rivera Library and the other two are on the first floor of Orbach Library.

These four printers will be maintained by ITS staff during their regular business hours, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on weekdays. Students who need assistance with Wepa printing should contact Bear Help / Support at (951) 827-4848, email bearhelp@ucr.edu, or refer to the online self-help guide prepared by ITS.
