Connect to a Lab Printer

Instructions for Connecting


The College maintains printers around campus in public spaces.  You can configure your notebook to print directly to these printers or sign on and print from a lab machine.  Please note printing from Chromebooks is not supported.

Printing is charged at a rate of $0.07 per page, with charges emailed monthly to students.
