Use the multifunction Ricoh printers

On this page:


The multifunction Ricoh printers in the IUB and IUPUI STCs and RTCs have options not previously available on single devices, including:

  • Color or B&W
  • Printing in simplex (single-sided) or duplex (double-sided)
  • Standard (8.5"x11") and tabloid (11"x17") paper sizes
  • Card-swipe access via your CrimsonCard

The queue selected (ending in "bw" or "color") determines the per-page rate for the output, regardless of the color content of the page.


There is no print release station or login process; you need only your CrimsonCard.

On the left is a touch screen. On the right, about waist high, is a card reader. Quickly slide your CrimsonCard face-up through the card reader.

If you do not have your CrimsonCard with you, you can still sign into the printer using the touch screen. To log in, tap the screen and enter your IU username and passphrase.


To print documents:

  1. Swipe your CrimsonCard.
  2. The touch screen will display a list of print jobs you sent to the printer. Next to each print job is a check box. At the bottom are three boxes labeled Print (grayed out), Print All, and Delete (grayed out). Do one of the following:
    • To print all jobs, touch Print All.
    • To select jobs to print or delete, touch the boxes to the left of the jobs; the number of pages associated with each job will display. Touch Print or Delete.
