Retrieving Your Print Job

Updated 8/31/2021

NU's print network lets you use any public printer on campus. You print from your device or one of the public computers, selecting HOLD-QUEUE as the printer. Then go to a printer to release your print job.

  • Tap ID Number on the screen.
  • Then enter your 7-digit ID number without the letter S, such as: 1234567

  • Then tap Print Release to see your print jobs and print them.
