Print From Laptop or Mac

Now you can print to the Pharos Print Cloud. Pharos printers are located in the Rowland Medical Library's Collaborative Learning Center and reference area of the library.

If you want to print from your laptop, you must first: Install the printer drivers.

Instructions are below these frequently asked questions.

Where can I print?

Currently, you will be able to print to the Pharos Print Cloud and release your print jobs at any of these Pharos print stations:

  • Rowland Medical Library Collaborative Learning Center (Library 1st floor)
  • Reference area of the library (Library 1st floor)
  • Classroom Wing - second floor (2nd floor)
  • School of Medicine
  • Student Lounge

How do I print?

You must print within 30 minutes of sending your request to the printer. After 30 minutes, your documents will be deleted from the queue.

Can I print on two sides (duplex)?

Yes, but it will charge you for each side. If you need help with a library printer, please see someone at the Information Desk for assistance.

Can I only print or can I make copies?

Yes, you can make copies on the printers located in the Library Collaborative Learning Center, Library Reference Area, and School of Medicine. Make sure you log off after you make copies, so someone else will not make copies using your account. The printers in the Student Lounge and Classroom wing only print.

How do I pay for printing?

All full-time students will be credited $50.00 for the year (usually in August) to pay for printing and copies. Printing credits DO NOT roll over to the next year if unused. Each page costs 10 cents. After the $50.00 credit has been used, students are responsible for adding additional funds to their printing account. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted at the Access Services desk for adding funds to a student’s Pharos account.

What if the $50.00 is not showing up on my account at the beginning of the academic year?

If you scanned your ID and printed in the previous academic year and you see a “left over balance” from last year. Go to the Access Services desk and ask them to reset your balance to $50.00

If you held a job at UMMC over the summer or prior to your enrollment as a student, your $50.00 may not automatically be reflected on your account. Please see the Access Services desk for assistance.
