About Printing and Scanning

With over 100 printing stations around CU-Boulder's campus, printing and scanning your documents has never been easier. Students, faculty, staff and public patrons can print or scan in one of three ways:

  • Traditional Printing (Lab): Print from a computer in one of OIT's computing labs
  • Scan to Email: Scan a document for electronic delivery to e-mail at no cost from one of many multi-function devices
  • Mobile Printing: Print from any device that supports your e-mail address
  • Remote Printing: Print from your personal computer or laptop using the remote printer driver associated with the desired print location
