Where are the Paw-Print Printers and Release Stations located on-campus?

The Paw-Print Printers are the college’s public printers accessible to students, faculty, and staff. The Paw-Print Printers utilize Follow Me and Release Printing technology. This technology allows you to print from a computer connected to the Bates Network (WiFi connected computers must be connected to the Bates Secure SSID) and release from any Paw-Print Release Station.

Once you submit a print job to the Paw-Print Printers, it will be available for you to release for up to 24 hours from any of the Paw-Print Release Stations. 

Note: To release a print job from a release station to a Paw-Print Printer, you will need to scan your Bates ID. When releasing a print job from a release station, your Bates Username and Bates ID are matched together. If you print from a different Bates Username, you will not be able to release the print job with your Bates ID.

If you encounter service issues (paper jams, out of paper, out of toner, printer errors) with a Paw-Print Printer, please text the Keyword associated with the printer to 555888 to notify the IT Help Desk of a Paw-Print Printer problem.
