Salisbury University offers many options for printing on campus for faculty, staff and students.
Information Technology encourages everyone to do your part to reduce printing and paper waste.
Student Printing Services
Printing In IT Computer Labs
Each of our IT computer labs have access to a black and white laser printer within the lab itself. Faculty, staff and students have a print queue of 300 pages per week, which resets every Sunday. Unfortunately, specialty paper stock, such as resume paper, is not compatible with lab printers.
Black and White
For black and white printing, you will want to print to the printer located within your IT Computer Lab. Once you print your document, you will need to release your document from the GoPrint station, located near the printer. The printers are named by the room number of the lab location.
|IT Lab Location||Printer Name|
|Fulton Hall 145||go_fh145|
|Fulton Hall 142||go_fh142|
|Devilbiss Hall 205||go_dh205|
|Perdue Hall 248||go_ph248|
|Perdue Hall 141||go_ph141|
IT provides access to color printing in both the Fulton Hall and TETC labs. Color printing costs 50 cents per page and is deducted from your Gull Card. You must have funds available on your Gull Card in order to print; we are unable to accept cash. You may put funds on your Gull Card at http://gullcard.salisbury.edu.
To print, select the appropriate color printer, and then print the document. Then, go to the GoPrint station located near the printer (for the TETC color printer, the GoPrint station is located in the Help Desk). Select your print, and then swipe your Gull Card to pay for your prints and release the job to the printer.
|IT Lab Location||Printer Name|
|TETC 110A, TETC 110B, TETC 116A and TETC 116B||go_te113a|
|Fulton Hall 142 and Fulton Hall 145||go_fh142_color|
Mobile Printing Kiosks
Information Technology has two mobile printing kiosks located in Fulton Hall near FH 145 and in Henson Science Hall near the food court. These mobile print kiosks allow students to print Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Adobe PDF files, as well as JPG, GIF and PNG image files, up to 50 MB in size from any computer with an internet connection. For more information, see our Mobile Print Kiosks page.
Media Services provides poster printing services in TE 352 and TE 352A for a nominal charge. See the student poster printing document for rates and hours. For templates and guides, see the Printing section of the Guides and Instructions page.
Personal Printers (Residence Hall Students)
Students do not need to bring a personal printer to campus, as we do have printers available to them through the labs and the library. However, if you wish to bring a personal printer with you to your residence hall room, it must be attached directly to your computer. Wireless printers and networked printers do not work with SU's residence hall network.
Faculty and Staff Printing Services
Departmental Printing - Canon Printers
Faculty and staff can print through departmental printers located in a central area in their department. Your printers should load by default when you log onto your office computer. If you do not see your printer after logging in, contact the IT Help Desk for assistance with installing your departmental printer. If you have a SU-owned Windows PC, you can also use our guides to add them yourself.
- Installing a Network Printer on a University Computer (Windows) - if your departmental printer is not already installed on your campus computer, these instructions can help you install them on Windows-based machines. If you are on a Macintosh and need assistance installing a departmental printer, please contact the IT Help Desk for assistance.

Faculty who are presenting a poster for a conference or for academic purposes can do so using the large format printer in the Faculty Development Studio in TETC Suite 213.

Other Print Services
Salisbury University offers professional printing and copying services through both the Copy Center and the Publications office. The Copy Center is located in HH 054 and can be reached at 410-543-6180. Publications is located in Holloway Hall and can be reached at 410-548-2500.
Salisbury University would like to encourage its students, faculty and staff to help with our efforts to minimize paper waste. We don't want people to stop printing, but we would like to try to minimize the amount that we do print.
In the 2013-2014 academic school year, SU students printed out 6,000,000 pages in our IT computer labs and the Blackwell library. Stacked, that pile of paper would reach 2100 feet high (taller than the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Washington Monument combined!) and weighs over 30 tons. And a good deal of that paper is never used: either printed as multiple copies, never read, draft copies or are "extra pages," pages that were printed unintentionally.
There are some small steps you can take to make a big difference in reducing printing waste. Here are some examples:
- Print double-sided when possible. All of our IT labs are set up to print double-sided by default.
- Print multiple slides on a single page in PowerPoint for both Mac and Windows.
- Reduce your margins and font-size.
- Use Print Preview and only print the pages you need, rather than printing the entire document or web page. Don't print out whole eBooks!
- Proofread and spell-check before you print to minimize the number of times you have to print a document.
- Do I really need to print this? In most cases, you can view, edit, even collaborate on documents online without having to print.
- Minimize your printouts. Print only once and print only one copy.
- Use PDFs to create electronic documents that can be viewed and read on multiple platforms.
- Instead of printing a copy to take with you, email a copy to yourself, use a USB memory stick, or online cloud storage instead.
