CUMC IT provides one color and 18 black and white high-speed laser jet printers located throughout the campus: the first two floors of the Hammer building and some student housing locations. A printing quota is required to use these printers. Students currently enrolled in a CUMC program receive their quota automatically. The printers are managed by the Pharos printing system; pages are deducted from the quota after logging in to the Pharos system to print.
Anyone with a Pharos printing quota may print on these systems, using either nearby public computers or by configuring their own computer to print using Pharos. All but the color printer have double-sided capabilities. The printers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. After sending a print job to a Pharos queue, the job will remain in the Pharos system for 24 hours before expiring.
This service is available to any faculty, instructors and students with a UNI account and a print quota.
Students currently enrolled in classes on the Medical Center campus who
are not affiliated (enrolled in a program) on Morningside as well, will automatically receive a 1000 page printing quota for use at the Medical
Center Library per semester. If you experience problems with your printing quota please contact the CUMC IT Service Desk.
To configure your own computer to print using Pharos, please see the Printing on Campus web siteand select the appropriate link for your computer's operating system.
