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 of two locations: two print queues that allow you to release your document anywhere. Once you have printed, you can go to any card reader-equipped printer on campus, scan 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. After connecting to the Milton wireless network, in the print menu from any application, select the “Add Printer” option. You will see a list of all printers on campus. You may have to click on a drop-down menu for the complete list.
For the large, floor-model Xerox printers, you would choose _print_anywhere, or it might appear as _print_anywhere on MA88. For the smaller, tabletop HP models (like in dorms, or some classrooms), you would choose _HP_print_anywhere.
You will be asked for your network / MyMilton username (first-letter, last name, year of Graduation) and your Milton password. After entering this, you will be able to print.
(*) Note about Macs: Macs try to “help” you by offering up your Admin password for the computer already pre-filled—but you need to change the username and password to be your MyMilton credentials. If your print job says “Hold for Authentication”, it needs that account.
iPhones will also want your MyMilton information to print.
To add a printer to any Windows PC, make sure you are connected to the Milton network, and then go to the Start menu icon, and in the “Type here to search” area, type:
Note the direction of the two slashes; the key you need is below the backspace key on your keyboard.
You will be asked for your Milton username and password. You need to enter a prefix, namely MILTON\ before your network username (MyMilton username). After logging in, a window will open with a list of printers. For the large, floor-model Xerox printers, you would choose _print_anywhere. For the smaller, tabletop models (like in dorms, or some classrooms), you would choose _HP_print_anywhere.
So it would look something like this:
Chromebooks, Android, and Chrome Browser
When using a Chromebook or printing from the Google Chrome browser, you can access any Milton printer through the Mobility Print service.
