Printing at Milton
There are several methods of printing on campus, and the best choice for you will vary depending on what kind of computer you are using and your personal preferences. Make sure to look at all of the choices below to choose the option that is best for you.
Milton uses a system called “Print Anywhere.” When printing, Milton faculty, staff, and students do not choose a specific printer. Instead, you will print to one location: a print queue called “_Print_Anywhere.” Once you have printed, you can go to any card reader-equipped printer on campus, swipe your Milton ID card, and release your print job. If your first printer choice is already in use, you can now simply walk to the next nearest printer and collect your printout there.
This printing system gives Milton users greater flexibility in printing, while increasing security and reducing paper waste.
Milton has enabled Airprint for all public printers on campus, which makes it very easy to add a printer. In the print menu from any application, select the “Add Printer” option. You will see a list of all printers on campus. If you are a Faculty or Staff member, choose _Print_Anywhere. If you are a student, choose _HP_print_anywhere.
You may be asked for your network (MyMilton) username and password. After submitting this information, you will be able to print to this printer.
Follow these instructions to make this printer your default.
To add a printer to any Windows PC, make sure you are connected to the Milton network, then press the Start button and type “\\MA88”
Note the direction of the slash. The key you need is below the backspace key on your keyboard. You may be asked for your Milton username and password. This will be your network username (MyMilton username). After logging in, a window will open with a list of all printers on campus. If you are a Faculty or Staff member, double-click on _Print_Anywhere. If you are a student, double-click on _HP_print_anywhere.
Follow these instructions to set it as your default printer.
