Jesus College provides three laser printers for use by Junior Members. They can be accessed from the workstations in the IT room, or from your own computer via the college network. Printing is charged at 4p per side of black-and white and 9p per side of colour output by the printer. Termly balances will be added to your Battels bill. Scanning is free, and the scanned documents can be saved on the file server in the Scanned Documents shared directory, direct to an email address or to an USB memory stick .

If you wish to print to the college printers from your own computer then please follow the instructions here for Windows or Mac OS X.

Windows

Basic Configuration

  1. Go to the start menu in the bottom left. Click "Run" (you can do a search for "run" or look in accessories for "run") and type \\prints2\ in the box that appears. Click OK.

  2. You should now be asked for a username and password - enter your college username WITH THE JESUSIT PREFIX e.g. JESUSIT\username followed by your password and click "OK". If, instead of the login box, your computer hangs around for a few minutes and then returns an error message, then your network settings are not correct and you need to check your computer is configured for the College network.

  3. Choose a printer to connect to. The IT room printer is called ITLAB_MX5070 ; the library printer is called LIBRARY_MX2630; Stevens Close (Conservatory) is called Stevens_Kyocera;

  4. Right click on your chosen printer and choose "Connect". You may be advised that drivers are needed and will be installed for you. Confirm this request if it appears.

  5. You will be asked if you want to select the new printer as your default printer. Select this option if you would like all future print jobs to be sent to this printer.
