Printing Services

Laser printing services are provided in all uTech computer labs and WIU Libraries. Documents may be submitted from lab computers as well as wirelessly from a personal laptop computer. 

uPrint, a service provided by uTech.

Once a document is submitted, the student visits a release station located near the printer(s), logs in with ECom credentials, and chooses ‘Print’ beside the document(s) to be printed. Documents submitted in error may also be canceled in this view. The printed document will be in the printer’s top tray.

Duplex (two-sided) printing is the default and we strongly encourage use of this setting.

Color laser printing is available only in Horrabin Hall room 75. There is a $.25 per printed side charge for color printing and Rocky Dollars is the charge-back method.

Wireless access to black and white laser printers is available from University Technology’s WebPrint Services. This service allows students to wirelessly print from a personal device.
