PrintND is a print management system that helps the University control printing costs while providing all students with a print quota to help them with their academic printing needs.  Please visit

our PrintND Frequently Asked Questions support page for additional information on PrintND on campus.

You will need to download the necessary driver for your operating system before you can use PrintND.

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

Registering your NDID Card

Most NDID Cards will be automatically populated into the PrintND system so that you can use them for logging into the release stations. However, if for some reason, your card was not prepopulated, you can register it yourself.

  1. Swipe your NDID Card through the card reader.
  2. Enter your NetID on keypad when prompted, and press Enter on the keypad.
  3. Enter your NetID password on keypad when prompted, and press Enter on keypad.
  4. Log out.

When you finish your task at a PrintND station, please be sure to LOG OUT. If you do not log out, the system may not automatically log you out and someone else could use your quota to make copies. Plus, if you are logged into one station, you cannot log into another and will have to call the OIT Help Desk for assistance.
