Students Can Now Print From Anywhere Using MobilePrint
Students can now print documents in Penn State computer labs remotely from anywhere thanks to MobilePrint. Anyone with a valid Penn State Access Account can upload documents from personal devices (read:smartphones, tablets, and laptops) to be printed at any designated print release station on campus.
Students and faculty can upload documents in any of the nine supported formats up to 50 MB in size using the Pharos Print app or using the MobilePrint MyPrintCenter website. Documents printed using MobilePrint will still be counted in the total number of free printed sheets each student is allocated at the beginning of the semester.
Any print job submitted through MobilePrint will remain in a queue for five days. During this time, students can stop by any print release station to print their documents at any convenient time without logging onto lab computers or transferring files, which can become complicated and time-consuming.
MobilePrint is especially helpful for students living off-campus without a printer — it will also make it easier for students to take advantage of the free printing included in their student fees.
