FAQs

My password doesn't work

Be sure you are using your NetID (@illinois.edu Email) password.  If you cannot login, visit Technology Services at https://identity.uillinois.edu and reset your password.  Make usre that you keep your passwords secure.  You are responsible for all activity done on your account.  

My print jobs look nothing like what I meant to print

This may happen when a software application alters a print job in order to make it easier to print.  Converting your document to a PDF or XPS and confirming that the file looks correct should resolve most issues.  You can convert a document to PDF by printing to Adobe PDF Writer and XPS to Microsoft XPS Document Writer (Windows Only).  Our printers cannot print less than .25 inches away from the edge of the paper.

I accidentally sent a print job that I don't want

To delete a print job, select Delete after typing in your NetID password.  Do not press Enter as that will release the print job.  Print jobs will automatically expire after an hour without activity.
