Printing Status and Issues

Printing System Update for Winter 2018!
The Law School printers have been updated as of January 9, 2018 to again use the card-swipe system.  If you had installed the printers before this date, you will need to reinstall them again to print.  LawIT left the previous Xerox print queues available to give you time to update.  We will be disabling the old system on January 24.  Please update your computers before this date in order to print to the Xerox printers.

macOS 10.13 High Sierra and HP printers
There is currently a problem with HP printers and Word and PDF documents that use the Calibri font. See this link for more details:

The easiest workaround is to print to a Xerox printer as both the student HP printers are affected by this problem.

Law students can download a printer installation program that will install the Law School network printers and configure them to print double-sided. The program will first remove any previously installed Law School printers (it will not remove your personal printers) and then it will install the following printers:
Law-Commons-HPM605 Lower Student Commons
Law-SH-LL-HPM603 South Hall Lower Level
Law-Student-XeroxPrinters * Legal Research Reading Room
Legal Research 1st Floor Alcove
Library Sub-3 Computer Lab
Library Sub-2 Copier Room
Compatible with Windows 7 - 10, Mac OSX 10.10 - macOS 10.13.

* When printing to the Law-Student-XeroxPrinters "Follow-You" printer, nothing will immediately print. Instead, your job(s) will be held on the print server (and you will not be charged yet). You can then visit any of the four student Xerox printers and swipe your MCard or enter your printing PIN to release and print your job(s). This method of printing is more secure since there is less chance of your document(s) being taken by someone else which is especially important when printing anything sensitive.  It is also more convenient in case a printer is crowded, or down for some reason. You can visit another Xerox printer to release your job(s) instead of reprinting.



If you do not have your MCard with you, or if you prefer to login to the Xerox printers with your uniqname and a PIN, you can set up your own PIN.  Login to the Law School's print quota webpage and click Change Details.
Note: PIN numbers must be at least 4 characters.

How to Use Card Readers

Follow this guide to become familiar with the process of swiping your MCard or entering a PIN to release your print jobs on the student Xerox printers.
