All student printing will be done using Wēpa.

What is Wēpa?

Wēpa is a printing service that allows students to upload their documents from campus and personal computers, tablets, and smartphones. Then, students can simply print from any of Whitman's numerous Wēpa printing kiosks.

How do I log in to the printing kiosks?

One way to log in to a Wēpa printing kiosk is by using your swipe card. Upon your first time swiping to log in, the kiosk will require you to create a six-digit PIN. You will need to enter this PIN each time you swipe in thereafter.

You can reset your PIN, if forgotten, by logging in to your account using instructions found later on this page ("How do I access my Wēpa account?").
