Printing to the On-campus Printers

You may print to the printers located in the Help Desk (room LRC 116) or the library as well as from other locations. For your convenience these NMU public network printers are already set up on your ThinkPad. If you'd like to use them on your personal computer, click here for Mac installation and here for Windows installation

To connect to Network, Lab, and other campus printers either select it from the print options list in the program you're printing from or set it as your default printer if you'd like to have your computer automatically pick this printer when you click "Print." Follow these instructions to set a default computer in Windows. For Mac, click here

1. Connect your computer to the on-campus network using WiFi, LTE, WiMax, Ethernet, or a VPN connection. 

2. In the Start menu or search bar, type "Devices and Printers" and select that option.

3. To change the default printer, right-click on a different printer icon and select "Set as Default."
  • Printing to the LRCLAB Laser or LRCLAB Color Laser printers will send documents to the Academic Computing laser printer stations. At these special print stations, you must insert your WildCat Express (NMU ID) card and select your print job to release the printouts. Your WildCat Express card will be debited 5¢ per page for black/white laser printouts and 15¢ per page for color laser printouts. There are special Card Value Center (CatCa$h) machines in the library to add money to your WildCat Express card for printing and other purposes.
