Students may print when logged into the computers in the library with the credentials assigned by the IT department. Please see the IT department if you do not have your own login/password. The copy machines accept the same credentials as printing.
If you want to print from your own laptop, you will need to setup the printer(s) and the printing program on your computer:
Windows (Open this file. Win8/10: Select the small 'More Info' link and 'Install Anyway') | MAC (Manual setup instructions)
You can print simple PDFs/MS Office/Picture files (no duplex, PowerPoint handouts, or custom range) by uploading the files to the Web Print section at the UWest Library Print Services website. Log in with your library account information.
With email printing, as long as you can send an email (via computer, laptop, tablet or phone), you can print simple PDFs/MS Office/Picture files. Simply compose a new email with your @my.uwest.edu* email and attach your document(s). Send this email to the printer to print:
