Requesting a Printer

UWB is moving away from individual printers, however you can request a printing assessment by contacting the UWB IT Helpdesk at uwbit@uw.edu or 425-352-3456. An assessment will take into account multiple factors including: ADA compliance, proximity, sustainability (environmental and financial), and location.

 

Requesting a (Printing) User Code

User Codes are required to print to any contract printer and are issued and maintained by Fiscal and Audit Services (FAS). Check with your school or department to obtain a user code.

New or additional User Codes can be requested by completing this form and sending it to Fiscal and Audit Services at uwbfisc@uw.edu. Budget authority is required to make this request.

Non-UWB IT Purchased Printers

Non-contract printers (and print queues) will no longer be authorized or supported by the campus due to support and maintenance costs; existing non-contract printers will be phased out. Faculty and staff are expected to use the more economical multi-function printer/scanners/copiers that are located across campus. Any exception to this policy must be approved by the CIO and Facilities.
