PrintQ Remote Printing Stations

​What is a PrintQ remote printing station?

Printing stations have been placed in various locations​ around campus. These printing stations have been installed to allow for more convenient and mobile printing from the Virtual Lab. For example, you will be able to send a print job to a print station from your personal laptop or library desktop and then release that print job when you're at the remote printing station.
