What is PrintSmart?

What is PrintSmart?
PrintSmart is a self-supporting program that allows students to copy and print from campus printers from either a lab station or a person laptop or device.

Note: You must be on campus to access PrintSmart.
Lab and Print Stations
PrintSmart provides options for both black and white, and color printing at campus computer labs or print stations.
PrintSmart Campus Locations
Driving Printing
Driver Printing gives student the convenience of printing directly from personal laptop, as they would on a home printer.

AirPrint
PrintSmart is enabled for AirPrint, which is an Apple technology that lets you print from directly from iOS devices (e.g. an iPhone or an iPad). In order to use AirPrint, you must install the PaperCut iOS app.
Using PrintSmart AirPrint
Web Print
Web Print enables students to print from their laptop or device, so long as it is connected to the campus wireless network. Although you don't need to install any applications or drivers to use Web Print, print rendering and queue times are significantly slower than Driver Printing. We advise that you install Driver Printing if you feel that the Web Print queue is too long.
