There are two methods available to print to public printers:

Direct Printing

From any public computer print your document. You’ll be prompted for your Amherst  user name, as well as a job name. Retrieve your document from any public printer. This is the method to use if you need multiple copies of a document or need specific printer settings such as custom sizes or single-sided prints.

Mobile Printing

From any Internet-connected device (desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.) email your document as an attachment from your Amherst email address to mprint@amherst.edu for black & white prints, or mprintcolor@amherst.edu for color prints. Note that this service only works from your Amherst email address. Print your document when ready by releasing it at the public printer of your choice.

Use Mobile Printing for Public Printers

Introducing the new and improved public printing system, the one-stop destination for your printing needs. From a public lab computer, to even your mobile device on the go, you can order your document printed and release it any public printer.
