Wireless Printing on Campus
What is It?
Printing via the wireless network. If you want to print a file or document and are not connected to the University wired network, you can do this via wireless printing. Numerous printers on campus are enabled to allow this and you can choose the one nearest your current location or to the staff or student swipe-to-release queue.
When Would I Use it?
When connected to Eduroam, UoW Students, UoW Halls or Lightwire wireless network, you can use these services to print a document from your device to one of the printing queues available on campus. Charges may apply, depending on which printer you use, and your status (staff member, student or visitor).
Airprint - AirPrint is an Apple technology that helps you create full-quality printed output without the need to download or install drivers.
