On Whitman's campus, the primary way to print black and white documents for classes and personal use is to use one of the printers located in the computer labs around campus. To do so, you must inevitably use GoPrint which may be accessed from any on-campus computer. What many students do not realize is that they may also connect to a GoPrint printer from their own personal computer. The following is an in depth guide on how to add a campus printer to your computer.
GoPrint, an overview
GoPrint is a centralized printer management system used by Whitman College to cater to the printing needs of the student body and faculty. You can access GoPrint from any computer connected to the Whitman network ( Whitman_wireless and Whitman_secure only). To print from personal computer, you will need to first go through our GoPrint Printer Setup Instructions. Each semester students are given $50 of free printing. One page of black and white printing is charged at 5 cents per page for single-sided printing and 4.5 cents per side for double sided duplex printing. Color printing is 50 cents per page/side. Seniors producing a thesis may request an additional $15 on their account free-of-charge by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and indicating their major and thesis advisor. If the $50 dollars worth of printing credit is used before the semester you must request additional printing credit. To check current usage of your personal credit, check your GoPrint Dashboard. During finals (December and May) black and white printing is provided free-of-charge. If your print job is lost due to a technical problem with the printer you can go to the GoPrint Dashboard to request printing credits refunded in your account.
