Community Printing Policy

Bridgewater College has implemented the WEPA printing service to managing campus printing. For community members who wish to print from the library’s community terminal, below are the current printing options.

  1. Log onto WEPA’s website ( and create an account. You can load money onto the account using the website or the printing kiosk. When you print, you will need your account’s username and password to access your print jobs.

  2. If you document is saved on a thumb drive (USB drive) you can use the drive to upload the document to the kiosk instead of using your WEPA account. You will still have to use either your credit card or pre-paid print card to pay for the printing.
