Printing to UD IT Supported Printers

This page provides information about printing to UD IT Supported Printers.

Printing Overview

To print from a Windows or Macintosh computer in an Information Technologies (IT) computing site or to print from a printing kiosk, you will need your UD ONEcard to release the job to a printer.

Students receive some free printing on their FLEX accounts for printing. Prints made after the free prints have been used will be charged to their FLEX accounts.
