Printing Considerations

Almost every department on campus has a multi-function copier (MFP) to which faculty and staff have access. An MFP allows you to print, scan and copy. If you require a personal printer in addition to the MFP, please keep these considerations in mind when seeking the right printer for you.

1.  Do you need color?
2.  Do you need an inkjet or laser printer?
3.  Do you need duplexing (two-sided printing)?

*VUIT-CAS does not support or recommend wireless printers.
