There may be broken links in this article, the GROK staff has been notified and is working to resolve the issue.

General Information:

This article shows you the step-by-step process of how to send a print job from your Mac laptop to one of the LSU Public Access computer lab print servers.

Anyone with a valid MyLSU Account ID and a Tiger Card now has the ability to print out documents remotely from their laptop in any of the LSU Public Access computer labs. Once you connect to a printer and submit your print job, all you have to do is use your Tiger Card to release and pay for the job at the PHAROS pay-station located in the lab where your print job was submitted.

There are two wireless printing options for Mac users, using web release through MyPrintCenter using your web browser or by installing the Mac Printer Package through TigerWare.

You can also print wirelessly at LSU from your Windows Laptop, for more information review the following:  Wireless: Printing from a Laptop (Windows).
