Faculty & Staff: Network Printers on KITE

Note: the instructions below are for Windows machines. (View Mac OS Instructions).

Universal Print

The recommended option for faculty/staff network printing is called Universal Print. This is Microsoft’s next generation print solution and is integrated with your Law School computer. This new system makes it very easy to add a network printer and send jobs to it. We recommend that all users use Universal Print - see our quick start guide.

Universal Print setup instructions

Note: Universal print currently works with the Windows OS only. Please use Kite printing to add the Seating chart printer.
