Accessing Printers

Printer drivers can be installed directly from this server, additionally, the Help Desk is able to manage each individual printer. The print queue for a printer can be accessed by double-clicking the printer icon or selecting “Open” on the right-click menu.

Procedure for Printing Files for on behalf of a customer

...

  1. The service charge is to offset the cost of labor incurred by utilizing student worker resources in printing.
  2. Printing a document on behalf of a customer takes away from our time to address the needs of others waiting in line at the Helpdesk.
  3. We encourage our customers to learn how to print on their own; the service charge is intended to promote that self-sufficiency.

*Please refer to the Color or Large Format Plotter printing guides section of the website to eliminate the need for the charge.
