Installing Printer Software for Wireless Printing on Campus (Locations Included)

Updated on

All printers require you to pay with money on your I-Card.

There are printers across campus, and if you know which printers you are usually closest to you can download the software for those printers to your computer and print from them anytime. All the software packs are available for download in this article. The download process differs slightly between Windows and Mac computers, however, so instructions for both are provided below.

This article is specifically for students who would like a printer object in their list of printers. You must be connected to the campus network in order to print with these computers. For information on wireless printing without installation, see the article Wireless Printing with Pharos Print.

If you want to learn how to print materials from Canvas, see the article Print Material Through Canvas.

Windows Wireless Printing

You may have to enter your admin username and password. If you are on a laptop, enter the username and password for your computer. 

4. The pack will begin installing. A box will appear when the installation is complete. Click Finish.


5. Ask your documents to print like you usually would. When you are prompted to choose which printer to print from, the campus wireless printers should be among your available options.

You can now print using any of the computers in the Pack. The Students Prints Pack will check for updates and update automatically; however, updates are not frequent. Because the initial package is a starter package, you cannot just download, carry on a thumb drive, and then install it somewhere else.

Mac Wireless Printing

1. Find the printer you would like to print from in one of the tables below and download the applicable pack linked under the tables below. The pack will download to your computer with the extension .zip.

2. Double-click the .zip file. The computer will change the file type from .zip to .dmg. Double-click the .dmg file link.

3. A pop-up window will appear. Double-click on the open box icon shown in the window.


4. Click Continue and follow the prompts to complete the installation.


5. Once the installation is finished, go to the App Store on your computer and click Updates. You should now see a Software Updates menu with HP Printer Software Update beneath it. Click the Update  button to install the update, then restart your computer.

6. When your computer restarts, you should be able to see whichever campus printers you downloaded a pack for when you go to print a document from your Mac.
