There are two kinds of network printers on campus: Public and Restricted. Public printers are located in computer labs across campus and are available for use by anyone with an active UW-Platteville account. Restricted printers are department owned and therefore available only to employees of the department.
To see a list of all our network printers, visit the printer install page. Printers are designated as "Public" or "Restricted" in the Printer Location field.
Moving or Turning Off Printers
Do not power off or move a network printer without consulting with IT staff first. Turning off a network printer at the end of the work day provides minimal cost savings with the advancement of power-saving features. If the device needs to be moved to a new location, Information Technology Services staff will coordinate the move to minimize printer downtime and ensure proper installation in the new location.
Purchasing a New Printer
Please contact Information Technology Services before purchasing new network printers; this includes multifunction devices like network copiers which provide copy, scan, and/or print functions. IT Staff will coordinate a proper purchase and verify that the device can be supported on our network. All new networked printer purchases must also be approved by the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Information Services.
