All Institute-owned office computers are capable of printing to various network printers around campus. For most users, the closest network printer will be configured as the default printer on your Institute-owned office computer.

Below is a list of the printers supported by ITG, including detailed information about each one.

Please note that Letter size paper (8.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall) is the default paper size for all IAS printers. You should make sure the Page Setup for your document in your word processor is set to Letter before printing. Any paper size other than letter size will cause the printer to wait for you to manually feed the paper.
