Printing

Printing from desktops

You can print from desktops in the dorms and the IC after logging into a computer with your Portal Guard username and password. Send your print jobs to the default printer (FollowBW). Be sure to log out of your account when you're done. When you're ready to print, choose the printer you'd like to use and swipe your card. Your jobs will be listed and you can release them. Print jobs are stored for 24 hours on this system.

If you have never used this system, you will need to enroll. To enroll:

  1. Use your Portal Guard username and password to log in to one of the desktop computers on campus.
  2. Send a document to the default printer (FollowBW)
  3. Register your Maritime ID card at the 1st deck of the IC; the Help Desk staff can assist you with this process
  4. From now on you can swipe your ID card at any of the dorm or ABS printers to release your print jobs

Printing from your laptop (while on campus)

If you would like to print from your laptop, you can submit a print job electronically after logging in with your wireless/LDAP password.
