Printing in the Residence Halls Open Computer Labs

Every residence hall Open Computer Lab is equipped with a pay-for-print system. This printing solution allows students to print from anywhere, and from almost any device. Students can add funds to their Owl Card Printing Account and use these funds on all copiers and printers. The printing system protects confidential documents and slashes the volume of unclaimed printouts. Users queue print jobs to a virtual queue, and then release them for printing on any campus printer.

TYPE OF PRINTING
COST

$0.30

The "release stations" require user authentication, by swiping an Owl Card or entering a FAU NET ID to release and collect sensitive documents. The printing system allow students to print wireless from laptops, netbooks, iOS, and Android devices with no driver installation or server authentication. Your print jobs will be held until they are released by the student directly from the most convenient printer. For more information, click here.
