Over three hundred black and white and color network printers and multi-function devices (MFDs) are available across campus. Individuals can also purchase local attached printers for individual use.
Printer Purchases and Support
Network printers must be purchased using the guidelines on the Purchasing page, refer to the DIIS Catalog. Budgeting for these purchases should be done as part of the normal budget cycle. Once purchased, network printers become part of the Technology Renewal Program and are replaced every four years. DIIS will configure and install the network printer and provide on-going support.
Local attached printers are purchased by individuals on own. DIIS does not support the configuration or functioning of these printers. Questions should be directed to the manufacturer.
MFDs can be leased or purchased. Print Production is responsible for the initial lease/purchase decision and works with the vendor, DIIS and the department to get the device installed and set up. Once installed, DIIS supports the network connectivity of the device, other functions such as: printing, copying, faxing, etc.. are supported by the vendor. Contact information for the vendor is available on each devices' asset tag or by contacting the Office of Print Production.
Individual departments are responsible for purchasing printing supplies such as toner, ink cartridges, cleaning/maintenance kits and paper.
Black and white printing is available in the public labs and the Library. Color printing is available in the Library. The Center for Print Production also provides color printing and a variety of other print services. The print management program, PaperCut, is in place for student computer labs.
