Note: These instructions assume you are in an Extension or campus office and are connected to either a network cable or wifi (uie-uofi or IllinoisNet/UIUCnet). You may not be able to see the printers you are looking for if these conditions are not met.

1. In a web browser (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox recommended) go to the following url: printerlogic.illinois.edu or click the little printer icon with a green plus on it.

If you are prompted to install the browser extension click here.

If you are prompted for an Authentication code, click here.

2. Simply select the office which has the printer you would like to add and then click on the printer. You should receive a dialog stating the printer name and confirming that this is the printer you want to add. After hitting yes the printer installation process will begin.
