How do I print?

Via your personal computer 

  • Connect to the Stanford wireless SSID, Stanford wired, or Stanford VPN network. If you are not on the Stanford network or you are using Eduroam, connect to the Stanford VPN or register your device for the Stanford SSID.

  • You must install the Printer Driver on your personal device  and access to the Print Queue. If you don’t have those, discover how to download & install Print Drivers.

  • Choose File --> Print from within the application.

  • From the Print pop-up window, choose SecurePrint (or your chosen name on a personal machine) for the printer. 

  • Click Print.

At the printer

  • Tap your Stanford ID badge or Stanford Printing Card on the printer’s ID card reader (not the touch screen).

  • Press the Secure Print icon.

  • Select each job you would like to print, or use the Select All button to select all documents to print.

  • Select Print/Save to print the document and keep it in the queue to print again later. Select Print/Delete to print and remove the document from the queue immediately. Print jobs remain on the server for 10 hours from initial print/upload.
