There are public computers located around campus that you can use to print to a networked public printer. Three public computer labs in the library allow you to print to our black and white and color printer. You will just need your credentials or your ID card to print. Every student has $30 worth of free printing renewed every semester. You can also print to these public printers directly from your personal computer. For help with printing, visit these instructions.
Please note that any personal wireless printers you bring to campus are not supported at this time. You should bring a printer cable to connect it to your computer. Also, note that you will need to go into the printer’s settings and turn off wireless. If you do not do this, the printer will broadcast its own wireless network, which will behave just like a rogue network and cause interference for the campus eduroam network.
Don’t Leave Your Devices Behind!
Mobile phones, tablets, headphones, and laptop computers are attractive targets for thieves, especially when left unattended and insecure. If you leave your belongings unattended, try to remember to bring your devices with you, put them out of sight, or lock them to nearby furniture using a laptop lock.
