GoPrint usage guide
GoPrint is a centralized printer management system that allows for printing to many printers found throughout campus.
All print jobs must be released from GoPrint via a Print Release Station before they will print. Log into a Print Release Station near the printer you want to use and verify and release* your print job. *Make sure to double-check the document name, number of pages, and the printer it's being released to before selecting 'Pay & Print'.
Each semester students are given $10 of free printing for the color printer. No funds are required for black and white printing, at this time.
Seniors producing a thesis may request an additional $15 on their account free-of-charge by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and indicating their major and thesis advisor.
Black and white printing is at no charge. Color printing is 50 cents per page/side.
Yes. The free printing credit (and any credit you add) may be used to print for classes and incidental personal use.
If you need to print for a student organization or as a teaching/research assistant, this can usually be achieved by setting up a secondary printing account that gets charged to the appropriate budget number. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Yes. If your prints don't turn out due to a technical problem with the printer (no ink, paper, etc.), you can go to the GoPrint Dashboard to request printing credits refunded in your account.
Note : Before you attempt to add a printer, make sure that you are connected to the on-campus Whitman network, either via ethernet or wirelessly (whitman_secure).
NOTE: Installing Library2ndFloor and Library_2nd_Color allows for you to print to any general access printer on campus.
When you are connected to the Whitman Wireless Network (whitman_secure), you can print to the installed printer by selecting File -> Print and choosing the printer from the list provided.
You may also set the printer to be your default printer by going to Control Panel -> Printer, then right clicking on that printer and selecting Set as Default Printer.
If the standard connection method doesn't work, the next step would be to try the alternative, direct-connection method.
If the previous method doesn't work, this is an alternative way of connecting to a GoPrint printer. Note that you must already have the proper printer driver downloaded and installed for this method to work.
Before you begin, find the name and model of the printer you would like to install by logging into GoPrint and finding the printer in the Printer Directory tab (which located in the top menu bar of GoPrint).
Your Mac login profile name MUST match your Whitman user ID to be able to print
Note: Before you attempt to add a printer, make sure that you are connected to the on-campus Whitman network, either via ethernet or wirelessly (Whitman_Secure).
You will now have Library_2nd_1 and Library_2nd_Color installed. These two printers will allow you to print to any general use printer on campus.
The printer should now appear under the list of available printers.
You will be able to print to this printer anytime you are connected to the Whitman network from anywhere on campus. Log on to a Print Release Station using your Whitman username and password.
You may also set that printer to be your default printer by selecting it from the drop-down menu on the Print & Fax page in System Preferences.
Note: If you are printing more than one page, please follow these instructions for double-sided printing. Note that double-sided printing is NOT set as default on the Macs on campus. You must set doublesided printing every time you print from a Mac.
If you have trouble with a print job, contact a student lab consultant or the WCTS Help Desk at ext. 4976 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have used more than 90% of your free $50 of printing, you can request to start charging additional prints to your student account. (Please note this request may take up to one business day to process)
