Student Printers: Mac

A new printing service will replace the existing service on January 8, 2020. All students will need to have the new print queue (“Law Student Printing”) installed on their laptop in order to send jobs to Law School printers starting on January 8. Students who participated in the pilot are ready for this change and won’t need to make any additional changes to their laptop (aside from deleting the old print queue “law-lab”).
Please read the full document below. In addition to installing the new print queue, you will also need to enter in your PennKey username when sending jobs to the printer. 

All members of the Penn Law community can print to any of the multifunction student printers located throughout the Law School. After sending your print job, go to any of the print stations and swipe your PennCard. Select your print job from the screen and it will be printed at that printer.
