MyPrint-Pickup Service

For health and safety, self-service student printers are not currently available in Libraries, residence halls, or other campus locations (with one exception: Medical students at the Warren Alpert Medical School can still use public printers in the Med Ed library). 

Students are still able to print on campus, however. Our service is currently limited to printing ahead of time from wherever you are, then visiting our MyPrint Pickup Desk to collect your prints.  We'll hold your prints up to one business day after you printed them.

All undergraduate, graduate and medical students have received our usual $30 of printing funds at the start of this academic year, and you can add more funds with the GET portal. We also  provide a list of our print costs in our related Help article.

Connect and print your documents in advance

    • You can also upload most file types to print through our web print service. This method works best on computers, but can work on some mobile devices too.
