Print and Scan Documents

How Do I Print and Scan Documents?

Pay-per-print services are available to students, in various campus locations such as computer labs and residential areas and the library, where a printer is conveniently located on the Library ground floor, across from the Circulation Desk. These printers can be remotely accessed from any computer on campus, including personal computers.

ITS provides all students with printer accounts. To use Pay-per-Print machines students need to credit their accounts at the Business Office.

Library staff will contact the Copy Center staff at extension 2744 to report any printer related problem and request professional help with maintenance.

The following page details easy steps to follow to pair any computer connected to the University LAN or Wi-Fi with the Pay-per-Print service.
