Mobility Print for Students (How-To)

Mobility Print is a way to access campus printing from your personal device while on campus and connected to the eduroam wireless network. You release your print job from any public printer on campus within 24 hours by either tapping your ID card or manually entering your Drake ID and password on the printer's touchscreen.

Mobility Print can print from any application and in any format. You have the ability to specify the Layout/Orientation, Duplex, paper size and paper source. Note: You cannot staple with Mobility Print.

At the beginning of each semester, full-time undergraduate students will be allocated $20 for printing/copying during that semester. Part-time students are not allocated funds. Students can add additional funds at any time via Bulldog Bucks.
