Printing to a Xerox printer using a University-managed Windows device

Users can print from University-managed computers to University printers. Print jobs are tracked and charged to the user's Campus card or, if authorized, to a Department account. 



INFO: Access is available on UMS networks or when running the Remote Access VPN.
WARNING: If not using a shared/department account for printing, you will need to have printing funds available on your campus card in order to print. See Add funds to UMS OneCard for PaperCut Pay for Print for instructions on how to add funds and check your balance.
