stoPrint - MacOS

When printing to the stoPrint or stoPrint-color printers, your documents will be held in a print "queue." This allows you to choose any MFC on campus to release (print) your document. Typical use cases:

  • Faculty and Staff who use their personal devices and need to charge print jobs to a Department Account.
  • Printing sensitive documents (because it requires you to release - and watch - the document print at the printer).
  • Students who print from a campus computer.
  • Students who cannot print using stoPrint-personal on their personal device (which, by the way, if you cannot get it working, please contact the IT Helpdesk for help first. Simply fill out this form.)
