Printers: Faculty and Staff

Adding Printers to Your Computer

Department network printers can be added to faculty and staff computers as long as the IP address is known or if the computer is domain joined.

Adding Printers to Non-Domain Joined Computers:

The IP address of the printer is needed for all of these options. This can either be found from the printer itself or from another computer which already has the printer added.
