About Printing and Scanning

With over 100 printing stations around CU Boulder's campus, printing and scanning your documents has never been easier. Students, faculty, staff and public patrons can print or scan in one of three ways:

  • Traditional Printing (Lab): Print from a computer in one of OIT's computing labs
  • Scan to Email: Scan a document for electronic delivery to e-mail at no cost from one of many multi-function devices
  • Mobile Printing: Print from any device that supports your e-mail address
  • Remote Printing: Print from your personal computer or laptop using the remote printer driver associated with the desired print location
