- Willamette's WUPrint service is for users on the Willamette network who do not have convenient access to a personal or University printer or want to send print jobs via the internet to public printers located in various locations across campus. Most of the Willamette computer labs use WUPrint exclusively for their print option.
WUPrint offers four printing options:
- Upload print: Available for a few common formats (MS Office and OpenOffice documents, PDFs and some image types). Nothing to install, just upload the document directly from your computer to the web and then print it to any of the listed printers. Available on- and off-campus.
- Web print: Nothing to install; just enter a web address and then print it to any of the listed printers. Available on-campus only.
- Email print: Nothing to install; send print jobs directly from a mobile phone or device via email using firstname.lastname@example.org. Available on- and off-campus.
- Driver print(recommended!): Allows you to connect WUPrint to your personal computer so that it shows up as a printer that can be selected from your applications' Print dialog box. Available on-campus only.
Setting up Driver Print for a WUPrint Printer
For your personal computer: You can set up a WUPrint printer on your personal computer that will allow you to send documents to your network print queue from an application's regular Print dialog box. When you are ready to release your print job(s), all you have to do is login to Willamette WUPrint, select a convenient printer, and print your documents.
