Printing UPDATES

Husky-bw printer upgraded to Xerox printers

Michigan Tech IT has upgraded the former Kyocera (husky-bw) printers with high capacity/high efficiency Xerox WorkCentre 7855 printers to better meet the increased printing load on campus.

The following locations will only have a color printer but have the functionality to print from both husky-color and husky-bw queues:

  • AOB G004
  • Dow 7th floor
  • EERC Lobby
  • Fisher 232
  • M&M U203

When printing to the husky-bw queue on these dual-queue machines, students will not be charged. Any job sent to the husky-color queue will incur the standard color printing charge.
