All printer locations support the standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper size. Some locations support 8 1/2 x 14 and 11 x 17.

Note: The email and web upload options only support the 8 1/2 x 11 paper size. If you would like to adjust advanced features, such as the paper size, use the traditional print option for your computer. You must have the printer installed before you are able to select the printer from your computer.

Your print job will be available for two hours.
No, you will only be charged if you authorize the job to be printed at a release station.
Contact the department-level support staff for that printer. If you are unsure of the department-level support for the printer, contact the ITS Service Desk.
PowerPoint does not use letter paper size by default. You must resize your document before submitting it by uploading or email:
  1. Open your PowerPoint file.
  2. Navigate to the Design tab in the ribbon.
  3. Select Slide Size then Custom Slide Size…; if you are working in macOS, select Slide Size then Page Setup.
  4. Select Custom from the dropdown menu.
  5. Enter 11 for the width and 8.5 for the height.
  6. If prompted to Maximize or Ensure Fit, choose Ensure Fit. In macOS, select Scale Down.

This means that there is a setting in the print job that is not supported by the printer. Most often, the unsupported setting is an incorrect paper size, such as trying to print paper size A4 on a printer that only supports Letter size. Try using a different printer or changing the setting for the print job.

If you need to print a document to a printer that does not support the settings you require, contact the department-level support staff. If you are unsure of the department-level support for the printer, submit a ticket to the ITS Service Desk.

Try swiping your card again, making sure you slide the card straight down. If the problem persists, you should have your card checked by Mountaineer Card Services. You will also get this same error if you are using a card that has been reported lost or stolen.
The department that owns the printer decides if the printer will be available for remote print.
No, you are not allowed to borrow someone else's ID card to print. You will ONLY see print jobs sent to your own login username.
The Upload icon will appear once you switch to desktop browser mode. If you continue to experience issues on your mobile device, check the Upload or Email a Document for MyPrinting article for an easy email printing option. 
MyPrinting does not support faxing. Student faxing is available at the Mountainlair Service Center.
