Student Quotas

Students are provided a $40 credit at the beginning of each academic year in August (this $40 credit covers the next 12 months) for printing services in the ITS public computer labs.

Full instructions on managing the print account, including adding funds, can be found on the Print Account Management Interface page.



Alumni, Retiree and Guest Print Accounts

Alumni, Retiree and Guests of the university are able to print at public workstations. Instructions for creating a guest print account can be found on the alumni and guest printing home.

Recent Graduate?

Alumni who have graduated in the last 18 months can still log into ITS lab locations. However, these alumni will still need to create a guest account if they wish to print and will not be able to print using their previous NetID and password login or from funds that existed on their account when they had active status on campus. All users in alumni status will need to print at public workstations.



How to Print

There are many ways to print on campus. Use the directions in the sections below for your preferred method.

Print from a Campus Computer

Students can log into any library or ITS-managed printer and print a document.

Printing Varies by Location

Some academic departments, such as Maxwell and Newhouse, manage their own labs. To access departmental computer labs, contact the respective academic department or visit the school and college support page. Those who have provided details instructions regarding printing at their locations can be found below.

Email to Print

If you are unsure where on campus you'd like to print, the option of emailing your document to be printed later is enabled. While email to print is enabled, it is limited black and white duplex printing only. Be aware that picking any alternative format will have inconsistent results.

To print, simply email your document to print@syr.edu from your @syr.edu email address. Students can then log in at any library or ITS-managed printer to print their document.  

ITS Lab and Library Printers Only

Email to print is only available at the library and ITS-managed printers. Guest accounts can utilize email to print using the instructions found on the Library support page.

Once you have sent your email with the document you wish to be printed, log into printing.syr.edu. Your job will populate within 1 minute on the jobs pending release queue.

Wireless Printing

Mobility Print

Mobility Print is the preferred wireless printing method for personal laptops and mobile devices in public locations and labs at Syracuse University. 

For instructions, select the operating system you would like to print from in the Mobility Print configuration documentation.

ITS Lab and Library Printers Only

Not all printers on campus are available for Mobility Print including printers in office locations and in school or college managed labs. In these cases, you'll be required to manually configure your device to print at your desired location. Manual configuration is available for macOS and Windows computers. Faculty and staff may also contact their academic or administrative support personnel for additional options.

Manual Wireless Printing

Manual configuration instructions are available for Windows 10 and MacOS (via Direct Connect). Manual printing is not support on mobile devices.

VPN Connection Required

A virtual private network (or VPN) connection is required to manually configure wireless printing on Windows and Mac devices. Secure access to Syracuse University's network on Windows devices is available through the use of SURA. Links to Mac instructions are included in the pages below.



Personal Wireless Printers

Personal wireless printers are not permitted on campus and will not work on University networks. We recommend a Bluetooth or USB cable to connect your printer to your computer instead. Student may request a USB printer cable at the ITS Service Center



Administrative Support Pages

For those managing printers and print servers, administrative support documentation, including admin interface, server, and printer guidance can be found on the Print Management at Syracuse University home page (restricted).
