CIS provides printer stations (both black & white and color) in the computing clusters throughout the campus. Users can use these printers to print from cluster computers as well as from their own personal computers.
Rooms with Windows and Macintosh computers and printers are located at various locations around campus. Computers are installed with specialized software and courseware.
CIS configures printer queues so that customers can access and control networked printers across campus. Depending on the printer, drivers can be preconfigured, and printers can be automatically installed at the desktop in some Windows-based environments.
