Launched last fall, the mobile printing service allows you to e-mail your print jobs to a central printing queue, from any device, for release at any campus print release station near you. No printer drivers need to be installed, nor is a connection to the UCB Wireless network necessary, making this printing method highly mobile, convenient, and easy to use.
If you've already been enjoying the benefits of mobile printing, please note that enrollment is required at the beginning of every semester. This is because OIT clears the mobile printing database each semester not only for security and stability reasons (e.g. clearing graduated students and stale records), but also to resolve discrepancies for users who have had to replace Buff OneCards that were lost over the course of the previous semester.
Enrollment is easy. At the start of each semester, simply swipe your Buff OneCard at any campus print release station to auto-enroll in mobile printing. Not sure where the print release stations are? Use our interactive campus printer map to find one convenient to your location.
Once enrolled, email your print jobs to firstname.lastname@example.org for black and white processing or email@example.com for color processing. New! Two new email printing queues were recently added to allow you to bypass the double-sided printing default: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The content of your email can consist of file attachments, text pasted into the body of the email, or both. You’ll receive an automated response from the print server letting you know that your print request was successfully processed, after which you have 24 hours to release your print job from any campus print release station (again by swiping your Buff OneCard).
