Printing at a WEPA Kiosk

About WEPA

WEPA (Wireless Everywhere Print Anywhere) is a print service that allows you to print from the web. You upload documents to the web following the instructions bellow, then release them from one of the stations we have in the school. Alternatively, you can print directly from a USB Drive after connecting it to the kiosk.

  • Terrapin Express Card

    Swipe your UMD ID at the WEPA kiosk in order to use your Terrapin Express account. You must have sufficient funds in your account in order to print. Please note that the funds in your terrapin express account will not be reflected on your WEPA balance, but you will still be able to use them.
  • Credit Cards

    Major Credit cards accepted: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover - a $0.40 charge is applied to this method of payment for each transaction.
  • WEPA Account

    You have the option of creating a WEPA account not tied to your UMD account if you wish. You can register for an account on the WEPA website.  MBA/Grad Students have a WEPA account that was created for you by Smith IT.  The account is registered to your @umd.edu address which is your UM Directory ID/ELMS/Testudo login with the domain "@umd.edu" added to the end. Adding the domain to the end is necessary to show WEPA that your account is linked with the University system and not one of their local accounts.
