Student Printing at the Student Multimedia Design Center

Printing from University of Delaware Library computers requires a UD ONEcard or University of Delaware Library Copy Card, as described here.  Print jobs from desktop computers in the Student Multimedia Design Center are released from one of the three print release stations in front of the service desk. The Student Multimedia Design Center has two black and white print release stations and one color print release station. All stations print on standard 8.5×11″ (letter) white paper only. Other sizes, colors, and styles of paper can be printed at the service desk for additional fees.

Free printing allocation

Many students’ UD ONEcards receive $5.00 as a free printing allocation every January and July.  This free printing allocation does not purchase photocopies.  After the free allocation is used, printing fees debit UD Flex accounts (see fee-based printing below). Carry-over of unused free page allocation is not provided.

Printers are located on the first floor and lower level of the Morris Library (see map for specific locations).

How to Print

From your Mac laptop:

1. On your Macbook, go to System Preferences and double-click Printers and Scanners.
2. Click the plus sign (+) below the Printers list.
3. When the Add window comes up, make sure the Default button is selected at the top and look for printers called 0-ud1sided, 0-ud2sided, 0-ud1sided-color, or 0-ud2sided-color.
4. Select the desired printer and click the Add button. The printer will be installed.
5. The first time you print using one of these printers, you will be asked to enter a username and password. This is your UD username and password. If you select the box to save the information in your keychain you will not need to enter this each time you print.

From your Apple mobile device:

1. To print using an Apple iPhone or iPad, touch the Action icon in the app you wish to print from, then scroll down the list of actions and choose Print.
2. Touch the Printer entry at the top, then scroll down the list of printers and choose on of the 0-ud1sided, 0-ud2sided, 0-ud1sided-color, or 0-ud2sided-color to select that printer.
3. Choose your print options and touch Print. The first time you use one of these printers you will be asked for your username and password.
4. To release the job, find an available printer. Go to the web page it mentions and log in using your UD username and password.
5. Select the jobs you want to print at that printer.
6. Pick up your prints from the printer
