Printing to a campus pay-for-print printer from your own desktop or laptop computer is easy with Miami uPrint. This service allows you to configure your Windows or MacOS computer to access printers across the campus.
IT Help, Miami’s technology knowledge base, has instructions for configuring Windows and MacOS computers, as well as a list of the available printers by campus.
After the uPrint application is installed on your computer, and the desired printer is added, simply use your computer's printer selection functionality when you print and then swipe your ID as you normally would at the Pay-for-Print station to release your print job. You only need to install the printer once, and your print jobs will stay in the print queue for two hours.
Note: To be able to use the uPrint service over the wireless network, you will need to set your computer for MU-WIRELESS using 802.1x
