The School of Law provides 2 Print Centers for student printing needs. Print jobs can be sent to the print system (Pharos) from one of the computers in the Library, your personal laptop (see below) or via email (see below). When printing from a Library PC or your personal laptop, there is a prompt (pop-up) for your MultiPass username/password, as well as an acknowledgment to confirm print. Print jobs are then held in queue to be released at one of the nearest Print Release Stations (see below).
Printing is free for all School of Law students. Students are allocated 3,000 pages annually. (Note: the Pharos system uses a monetary basis to define printing with $.03 representing a single page. Rest assure, students are never charged a fee for printing).
Print Centers and Print Release Stations
Students can release their queued print by entering in MultiPass credentials at release stations in the DCLI Print Center or on the first floor. From there a list of pending print jobs can be selected to print to a nearby printer. Print Release Stations (and accompanying printers) are located as follows:
- Three in Room 218B on the Law Library (The Print Center)
- Two in Room 117 of the Law Library (Auxiliary Print Center)
The system will determine the first available printer and send your job to that printer and the release station will indicate which printer your job is being sent to.
Note: Un-printed jobs will remain in the print queue for up to 12 hours.
Printing via Email
Students can add files to their queue by sending attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org from your duq.edu email address. You may be prompted to first register your email address, linking it to your printing account. Please note you will receive a confirmation email back when your job is ready to be released (usually processed in less than a minute).
