BGSU Remote Print

 

Remote Print provides users with the ability to conveniently print documents from their own devices to ITS lab locations.  

Using remote print, you can send a document to be printed from a personal device in an on-campus location to remote print locations.  Then, once the you are at a remote print location, you can swipe your BGSU ID or enter your BGSU username and password to unlock a listing of queued documents.  You will then select the appropriate document from the listing and print. Standard printing costs apply and documents left in the queue longer than 24 hours will be automatically released from the list with no charges being applied.

In order to utilize remote print each user will need to set up remote print on their device.  This set up needs to occur one time - the set up is not required with each print.  Set up instructions are provided below.

A listing of the BGSU Remote Print release stations is provided here.
