The following steps will add a MyPrint print queue to your Mac computer. These instructions are primarily for students or others who have computers that aren't managed by Brown. If you have a computer managed by Brown, you can ask your computing support staff (ITSC or DCC) to add the queue(s) to your computer. If you encounter any problems, contact the IT Service center at help@brown.edu.

Undergraduate students should use the MyPrint-BW and MyPrint-Color queues. Faculty/staff/grad/med students should use the MyPrint-Pro-BW and MyPrint-Pro-Color queues.
