Each Residence Hall has a printer available at the front desk for students to utilize. Students can connect to these printers from their personal computers in their rooms, and Residence Hall computer lab machines are configured to do this automatically. Below you will find useful information regarding the printers. Please note that this system is separate from the BearPrint System maintained by Computer Services for the open-access computer labs. Information about that system can be found here.
Regardless of operating system, configuring a computer to connect to the front desk printer is a quick and easy process.
For specific instructions, please consult our
Connecting to Front Desk Printers tutorial.
Note: You must complete the steps to log into the print server each time before you submit a print request.
In an effort to enhance your ability to print to the front desk printers and to help conserve precious resources, an automated laser printing quota system was instituted beginning the 2006 Spring semester. Below are a few important highlights:
As of October 9th, 2008, all of the Residence Hall front desk printers print on both sides of the paper.
The University decided to make this the default setting as a means to conserve natural resources and maximize efficiency.
In addition, it makes for better use of students' print quota, since the quota is based off of the number of pages physically printed,
as opposed to pages that appear in the document.
This will effectively double the amount of printing a student can do.
Note: Macintosh users must manually select the "Two-Sided" option to print double-sided. See our printer setup tutorial for more information.
