Campus Printing

  • SVSU has adopted a centralized print management solution to help lower operating costs, increase efficiency of shared resources, and to eliminate waste where possible.  All employees and students are encouraged to "think before you ink" and to utilize shared devices whenever possible. Visit the Print Management site to learn more about the various printing features and policies available to campus users.
  • Administrative offices have reduced the number of individual printers, using central network printers and/or multi-function printers (MFP).  The MFPs provide network printing, copying, and scanning and may require authentication to release secured print jobs.
  • SVSU faculty also have access to shared MFPs throughout campus. For those with special circumstances, individual office network printers may be requested and approved for purchase through their respective department chairs and deans.
