PS - a hearty "thank you" to the ITS staff who helped us get this new service working.
PPS - we would like to stress that, while amazing, this service does rely on a lot of network magic to work so it isn't 100% foolproof.
PPPS - we'd love to hear your feedback on this new service so don't be shy in letting us know what is and isn't working!

How to print from your phone, tablet, or other mobile device (from THIS KB article.)

First, make sure your mobile device is using the MCAD secure wireless network. (Mobility Print will not work via cell carrier signal.)

Go to THIS link.

Click on the link for the OS you wish to print from and follow the instructions.

**Pay attention to your PAGE SETUP as it won't usually match a regular paper size by default**

The following MCAD printers are currently set up for mobile printing:

  • SB-BW-Letter (A and B)
  • SB-Color-HP
  • 3rdFloorMain-Canonir3235i
  • 4thFloorMain-BW-Canon
  • Library-Canonir3235i
  • Library-Color-Laser
  • FCC-Computer-Lab-HP

Once sent from your device you will still need to log in to a release station or your PaperCut account to release the print job.
