Managed Print

Coming for Students in Fall 2021

Managed Print was identified as an opportunity to save the institution and its students money.

The Managed Print initiative will seek to reduce waste, increase efficiency, create accountability, facilitate metrics collection/reporting and offer improved features and functionality by creating a unified managed print system that will meet the needs and expectations of students, faculty and staff across all UNG campuses.

Student Printing

What's changing?

You will be able to print from any computer on campus and “release” your documents at any printer on campus by swiping your UNG ID card.

What is a print release?

Once you’ve sent a file to be printed, simply walk up to any print release station and swipe your UNG ID card to gain access to the files you have waiting to be printed. Select your file name, and release to print.

Why is it changing?

Better security – Often times students print files and forget to retrieve them from the printer or print too many pages mistake. By adding print release functionality, you can select what pages to print and when to print them while you’re at the printer.

Reduced waste – It’s estimated that 12% of print jobs result in wasted paper due to printing in error or forgetting to pick up the documents. Print release will help cut down on waste by allowing for more control over what you choose to print and when.

Saving resources – Students printed 4.2 million pages in 2019. If we use the 12% estimate on counting waste, we’d save over 500,000 sheets of paper just by implementing the print release functionality!

When is this changing?

Devices will be in place and software in use by start of the Fall 2021 semester.

Where are the devices located?

Software will be installed on open-use computer labs, libraries, and select common areas.

Printer locations will be viewable on a campus map, coming later this year.
