Wireless Printing

Our university’s printers are set up to allow for wireless printing. However, the method by which you connect to the wireless printer can vary depending on what operating system you are using. Look below to find your operating system, then follow the steps in order to print wirelessly.


  1. Download the “Students Prints Pack"

  1. A downloaded file link titled “Students Prints Pack” will appear at the bottom of your screen. Click this link.

  2. Click “Install” from the box that appears.

  3. The pack will then begin to install. Once it has finished, a box will appear telling you that the installation is complete. Click “Finish.”

  4. Print your documents like you ordinarily would. When you are prompted to choose which printer to print from, the available wireless printers should be among your options. Select that printer and print away.


If you are using a Mac, which program you will need to install can vary depending on your location on campus and the type of document you are printing. Identify the correct program using the following guide.

  4. Click “Continue.”
  5. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.
