This page contains instructions for using ICS printers on the Urbana-Champaign campus.

You can print to the ICS lab printers from anywhere -- whether from an ICS lab or from your personal desktop, laptop computer or mobile device at any location. When you send a print job to an ICS printer, the job is queued until you come to the lab and release it from the printer by entering your NetID and ICS password.

Note:If printing from off-campus or Orchard Downs please connect using the VPN client.
