General Information

With mobile printing, you can print:

In all cases, you must still go to a print release station to pay for, and print your documents. The "funds available" shown in the app and web interface does not represent your URos balance.

Printer Locations

Black and White printer release stations can be found in the main entrance area of the Miner Library, the OME Lobby, the Miner Library Computing Center and opposite PBL 7.

A Color release station is located opposite the Answer Desk by the main entrance of the Miner Library.

NOTE: Mobile Print jobs cannot be password protected.

Mobile printing accepts the following file types (not to exceed 50 megabytes per file):

  • Microsoft Word
  • PDF
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Images (PNG, JPG, GIF, TIFF)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint Text (TXT, RTF, CSV)
  • Microsoft Visio      

For all other document types, you must print from a Mac or Windows PC.

Instructions for Email Attachments

You can email a document to Mobile Print directly for printing. Send your document as an attachment to one of these email addresses: for Black and white output for Color output

Note: If the body of the email exceeds 250 characters, both the body text of the email and any attached documents will process for printing. Then you just need to go to a print release station to print your job. The header of the email will appear as a separate job from the document you wish to print. Unless you need to print the body of the email, too, you should only print the file that was attached.
