Adding Network Printers

Adding Network Printers on your Mac and PC

These instructions are for students who want to install the Scripps laser printers located in the dorms and the Steele 226 computer lab onto their personal computers.  These printers have double sided printing capabilities.  Students get 2000 free laser printer pages per year; seniors get 3000.  When students print to Scripps printers the pages are debited from their print balance.  Blocks of additional pages may be purchased from IT in Steele Hall room 10.
