Print to MyPrint from Your Computer

If you work at South Street Landing, you should already have the MyPrint printer installed on your Brown-owned computer. (If you are using a personal computer or your office isn’t at South Street Landing, you will need to install the printer before printing for the first time - for assistance, please contact SSL-ITSC@brown.edu.)

  1. As you usually do, choose the Print option in the program you are using.
  2. From the list of printers, select the printer called MyPrint-SSL-BW (for black and white) or MyPrint-SSL-Color (for color).*
  3. Before continuing to print, check the print settings. For example, if you’d like to print single-sided, you will have to change the setting here, because MyPrint defaults to double-sided to encourage sustainability. For more information, see the Printing Options sections for Windows and Mac below.
  4. The first time you print, you will be prompted to enter your Brown username and password. You can check “remember me” to avoid future prompts.
  5. Last, pick up your prints from the printer.

 

* Regardless of whether you choose the Black and White or Color queue, you'll be able to pick up your print job at either a black and white or color printer. If you choose the Black and White queue, your print job will come out in black and white at either type of printer.
