Alumni, Retiree and Guest Print Accounts
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
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.
ITS Lab and Library Printers Only
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.
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
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.
