Managed Print Service (MPS)

All active GU-Q students, faculty, staff, and affiliates are eligible to use the Managed Print Service (MPS) at Georgetown. GU-Q uses a print service called PaperCut, which allows you to print documents securely from your desktop or laptop computer, as well as from your iOS or Android mobile device.

GU-Q uses PaperCut as the managed print service software and multifunction Nashuatec printers. Printing a document using the managed print service involves a couple of steps:

First, you need to setup printers (print queues) on your devices.

Faculty and Staff GU-Q computers are setup with the printers (print queues) as their computers are issued by GU-Q IT.

Students and employees with personal devices, such as laptops and Smartphones need to be setup with the printers (print queues).

Second, you send your document to one of the print queues (GUQ-Print-BW and GUQ-Print-CL); the queues are the same across the university, and it’s where all print jobs will be stored.

Third, once you send your document to the print queue, you print (“release”) your document from any of the printers across the campus.

Note: You will have up to 24 hours to print your document after you send it to the queue; after this time period, your document will be removed from the queue. If your document is removed from the queue, just resend the document to the queue.
