Group Printing

The Department of Learning and Academic Engagement in Bird Library will gladly provide basic printing instruction for groups

  • We require notice of at least 24 hours in advance. 
  • Groups should not exceed 15 persons.
  • The instructions are done using the computer stations on the 1st floor of Bird library. 
  • Computer stations cannot be reserved, so appointments between 8-10am are advised.
  • The instructor should accompany their group whenever possible.
  • Please contact Stephen Singer for further questions. 

Class/Department related printing payments (ITS Print Management Technical Team)

Funds can be added to an individual’s account, not a department. If you want to pay for a print job for an individual, send an email to the Print Management Technical Team (pmtt@syr.edu) with the Name and NetID of the individual, the amount to be added, the chartstring to charge and the person to notify for the Journal Entry. Once the funds are added, you will be be notified. The person will then be able to login wherever they like to print with the additional funds. 

It can take a few days for the request to be processed, so you'll need to get requests in as soon as you have the necessary details.
