Printer Kiosk and Print Stations

There are times when having access to a printer can be a challenge. To address this, UIT provides a campus printer kiosk and print stations for students who need to quickly print a document from their laptop or remote desktop computer.

Locations

The printer kiosk is located in the Student Center North, and a black and white print station and a color print station are located in Technology Commons.

Payment

The printer kiosk and print stations accept the Cougar Card as the only payment method. Cost per printed page is $0.02 for black and white and $.20 for Color.

UH students receive a print quota of $7.50 per semester. Any amount that exceeds this quota will be billed to the student's Cougar Card account.

Required Printer Drivers

To use the kiosk or print stations, students must first install printer drivers that can be downloaded from the UIT Software Download site. Click on your desired driver from the list provided. In the dialog box that appears, click Run to start the installation. If a security-warning box appears, click Run. When Package UIT Printer Kiosk Client Installer appears, click Install. After the installation, click Finish.

To view the printer you have installed, select Start -> Settings -> Printers and Faxes.

Printing to a Kiosk

Select Print from the File menu of your document. In the Print dialog box that appears, select kiosk printer. Click OK.

A password dialog box will appear. Enter your desired password and store it in a safe location as you will be prompted for it to release the print job from the printer kiosk.

Retrieve your print job at the kiosk. Print jobs are held in queue for 2 hours, after which they are automatically deleted.
