Wireless Everywhere Print Anywhere, is a cloud printing environment that is available across a network of touch-screen printing kiosks. This program brings the latest innovations in distributed printing services to the TTU campus:
Multiple WEPA™ kiosks are available across campus:
Pronounced wee-pah, WEPA™ is an acronym for "Wireless Everywhere Print Anywhere." WEPA™ is a breakthrough in Wireless Printing Technology. WEPA™ uses "cloud computing" to upload documents and send them via the web to WEPA™ "touch-screen" kiosks where students can then print their documents.
WEPA™ is a printing service that was developed to meet the needs of schools and students by providing a user-friendly service and convenience that keeps students from being confined to a lab or library – the typical places that printers are found. WEPA™ kiosks can be placed anywhere (labs, libraries, dorms, cafeterias, etc.) to print documents and serve the printing needs of students.
Once registered, a student can upload a document from anywhere that internet service is provided. Then, go to the nearest WEPA™ kiosk and simply login, select method of payment, and print their document. Note: There must be an internet connection to upload documents to WEPA™.
You can upload and Print any document to WEPA™ such as PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, Text files, MAC files, or PDF files. You can also print image files from a USB drive.
WEPA™ registration is tied to your Texas Tech eRaider credentials, and in most cases registration is automatic. To manually register, you will need to visit the WEPA™ website to complete the registration.Registration requires a TTU email address. For TTU guests who do not have a TTU email address, a WEPA™ account can be created by visiting wepanow.com.
Texas Tech University Raider Card:
You may pay for your print at the WEPA™ kiosk at the time of printing using your Raider Card (listed as Campus Card on the kiosk). Students can deposit funds via the TTU ID Office or through the University ID/Raider Card website.
You can print from mobile phones, laptops, desktops, or tablets, as long as you have internet access and the proper drivers installed on your device. After you've registered, drivers for PC and Mac are available on the WEPA™ website members area. Several training videos are available to assist with using WEPA™.
