Printing @ CSE

General printing in CSE is provided through shared printers located in special printer rooms on each floor and in most instructional labs. A few special use printers are also available.

Printers are classified into four groups:

  • instructional printers, located in labs and used for class assignments and educational projects;
  • research printers, available to faculty, staff and graduate students;
  • administrative printers, located in the main office and support areas; and
  • private printers, located in specific research labs and accessible only from a restricted set of machines.

All printers are PostScript compatible, and all can handle duplex (double-sided) printing. Printer names start with the prefix ps or psc (for "PostScript" and for "PostScript color" respectively), and the suffix indicates the printer location. For example, ps381 is a monochrome Postscript printer in CSE 381; psc381 is a color printer located in the same room; pscLarge is the color PostScript printer for printing posters and banners (no duplex printing!) Most printers are located in the Allen Center, a few are located on the third floor of Sieg Hall.

Below are non-exhaustive lists of instructional printers:

  • ps002 Ricoh Aficio MP 301
  • ps003 Ricoh Aficio MP 301
  • ps006 Ricoh Aficio MP 301
  • ps022 Ricoh Aficio MP 301

Document Scanning

Both large floor photocopiers (Xerox MFDs (Multifunction Devices)) in the main copy room (CSE 103), Ricoh floor color photocopier in CSE 622, and desktop-style Ricoh MFDs in printer closets (CSE 241, 281, 341, 381, 441, 481, 541, 581 and 622) can be used to scan multi-page documents that are delivered to your email inbox as a pdf attachment. Scan To E-mail will handle documents up to about 100 pages. For larger documents, we recommend that you split your document into several smaller batches. Alternatively, you can use the Scan To File service, which does not have these limits, but which does require another step to retrieve your document, and requires prompt retrieval.

You can convert your document to tiff format instead of the default, pdf, make image adjustments to the original, and even scan double-sided documents with ease. The Xerox MFDs will only produce monochrome results - if you need color scans, you should use Ricoh MFD. Make sure to change the send setting from black&white to full color or auto color select before start scanning.

You will need to provide your CSE NetID and password, to ensure reliable email delivery and to allow network file access for the Scan-to-file service (known as "Network Scanning" on the Xerox MFDs).
