How to Print

New PrintND Drivers!

Please update your PrintND drivers here.

You must be connected to ND-Secure or the wired campus network to download the drivers and to print.  If you are connected to any other network, you must connect to the VPN first.

Once your new drivers are installed, everything gets easier:

  • Only two queues:  All ND Color, and All ND BW
  • Quota is given in a point system
  • A small information bubble may inform you of the point charge for your print job

How to print this year:

  1. Connect to the wired campus network, ND-Secure, or to VPN to print.
    Click for more details
  2. Install the PrintND drivers, new August 6.
  3. When you print a job, select All ND BW (black and white or greyscale) or All ND Color.
  4. Enter your netID when prompted

    Alternatively, try our Mobile Printing. Mobile printing does not require a VPN connection.

  5. Depending on your computer, you may get a small information bubble telling you how many points your job will deduct from your quota.  Quota is NOT deducted until you release the job at a Pharos printer station, however.
  6. Locate a color of black and white printer in one of many campus locations
  7. Log into the Pharos release station.  Click on the job or jobs you would like to print, and click “Print.”  The Pharos station will deduct points from your quota, and your job will print on the nearby printer.


Note:  Printer drivers for unsupported operating systems or for mobile devices are not available.  However, you should be able to store your document in Box, or Google Drive, and then access it from a Lab computer for printing.
