Prerequisites - What You Need

To print to one of the DUnet Printers on campus, the printer and related software must first be installed on your computer. The first step is to run the DUnet Setup and select the Complete Setup option.

A variety of computer labs are also available around campus; many of which have the DUnet Printers added to the computers and one or more DUnet Printers located nearby.

Should you need assistance running the DUnet Setup or connecting your computer to the University of Denver network, contact the IT Help Center.

You will need a valid Pioneer Card or a Copy Card with an available balance when it comes time to release your document(s) from a DUnet Print Station. More information about these cards is available on the Pioneer ID Card home page.

Select Printer, Adjust Options, and Print

When printing from an application, select the printer you wish to print to. Depending on what you are printing and what DUnet Printer you choose, you may want to adjust one or more of the default printer properties or finishing options, such as duplex or two-sided printing. These settings will impact both how the document prints as well as the final cost of the document.

Recommendation: To be certain a document is billed at the least expensive (black and white, duplex) rate it may be necessary to select the grayscale setting, even if the document appears to only contain black and white text and/or graphics.

The Popup

Shortly after you print your document on your computer, a Pharos Popup screen will be displayed on your computer. Enter the Pioneer ID Card or Copy Card number that you wish to use to release your document on the DUnet Print Station.

Once the Popup dialog has been submitted by clicking the Print button, your document will be available at the DUnet Print Station(s) associated with the printer you choose to print to.

Unreleased documents are available on the DUnet Print Stations for up to four (4) hours, after which they are automatically removed from the DUnet Print Stations.

Swipe Your Card

To activate the station to print your job, swipe your Pioneer Card or Copy Card in the card reader usually located at the base of the display.

Once the station has been activated, a list of associated print jobs will be displayed along with your current account balance(s). Should one of your accounts have a zero balance (Uniprint or Flex account), only a single, unidentified balance will be displayed.

Select and Release Your Print Job

To release your print job(s) (document(s) to be printed), select the document(s) and click the Print button.

The jobs list can be sorted by Job Name, Owner, or Date if you click on the column headers. Once or or more documents have been selected, the corresponding cost can be seen above your account balances. Your account(s) will be charged accordingly for each selected document once the Print button has been clicked. The Public Printing system will attempt to charge your Uniprint account (free printing allocation) prior to attempting to charge your Flex account (should your Uniprint account not have sufficient funds).

Print Release Station

To insure no one else uses your account for printing, always click the Logoff button after releasing your print jobs. This returns the release station back to the main Print screen. The DUnet Print Station will usually automatically sign off after six seconds of inactivity.
