Printing for Faculty & Staff (How-to)

These instructions show how to print to one of the new Xerox printers being installed on campus, with some instructions for those who are authorized to print to remaining Lexmark printers. 

1. Select Print from Your Program

  1. Select Print for your document from whatever software you’re using. The example below is showing Microsoft Word from a Windows computer, however the same process applies for a Mac computer.
  2. Select the right printer queue, depending on whether your job is color or black and white. There is a list of printer locations and typed linked to the right. Xerox printers use BW Xerox Follow Me or Color Xerox Follow Me queues. NOTE: If you've been authorized to use a Lexmark printer in your area, you’ll need to select that printer directly.

3. Go to a Campus Printer

Find the nearest printer or the printer in the location where you want to retrieve your print job. Most campus printers print color and black and white. Black and white printers will have a sticker indicating they are only black and white. There is a list of printer locations linked to the right. NOTE: If you’ve printed to a Lexmark printer, your print job will only be accessible from that Lexmark printer.

  1. Once you’re at the printer you want to use, you’ll see a login screen like the one below.
