CU Print is a printing service offered by Cornell Information Technologies. It's a fast, easy, and inexpensive way to print. With CU Print, you can use any networked computer to send files over the campus network to laser printers located in libraries, computer labs, and elsewhere. At the moment (early days), you'll find CU Print locations in Mann Library, Uris Library, and RPCC.
You can use these printers from a computer at a campus computer lab, or from your own computer on or off campus. You need to install CU Print to use it from a personal, non-lab computer; computers in labs already have the software installed.
To use CU Print, you'll need your Cornell NetID and password, plus a CU Print account. A CU Print account has been created for all matriculated students.
In order to install CU Print, or print to a CU Print printer, you must be connected to one of Cornell's Wi-Fi networks (not including the Cornell-Visitor wireless network). If you're off campus, use CU VPN to connect to Cornell's network.
CU Print is replacing Net-Print as the campus printing service. The Student Assembly, IT Governance Council, and other stakeholders gave feedback and guidance in creating a printing service that:
- Focuses on printing for students.
- Strives for uniform and reduced printing rates, offering free printing allocations to all students.
- Uses vendor-supported and -provided software, out-of-the-box solutions to improve cost effectiveness.
- Implements solutions that are sustainable and environmentally engaged.
- Standardizes applications and printers to promote ease of use and reduce support costs.
