Pitt Printing enables students to send print jobs from any location to Pitt Print stations located in the computing labs, plus many remote locations across campus. Pitt Printing enables remote printing from computers in the campus residence halls, computers connected to Wireless PittNet, computer kiosks, computers in the computing labs, and off-campus computers using an Internet connection. To use Pitt Printing, students must first download and install the Pitt Printing client from the Software Download Service at My Pitt (my.pitt.edu). After sending a print job to a Pitt printer, students can pick up the document by swiping their University ID card at the print station.
Printing in the Computing Labs
Pitt Printing is a student resource. Both color and black & white printers are available in all labs. By default, print jobs sent from a lab computer are sent to Pitt Printing stations located in the labs. Students simply swipe their ID cards at the Pitt print station to print and pick up their job.
Check Your Print Quota
Pittsburgh campus students receive 900 print units per semester. Black & white sheets are 1 unit each. Color sheets are 7 units each.
Students can purchase additional units at Technology Services desk at the University Store on Fifth (please remember your Pitt ID) or using Pay Stations located in the David Lawrence Hall and Hillman Library Campus Computing Labs (cash only).
You can check how many pages you have printed at any time. Log in to my.pitt.edu, select Profile, click Manage Your Account and then click Manage Email and Print Quota.
Quick Print Stations in the Labs
In a hurry? We have installed Quick Print stations in all of our computing labs to help you print that paper and get on your way. Quick Print stations feature faster logins than normal computing lab machines and 15-minute time limits. Please keep in mind that you will automatically be logged out after 15 minutes.
