(April 10, 2014) -- UTSA campus printers and software were upgraded recently, bringing 51 new printers with 21 in remote locations. Called PrintSpot, the system has served student printing needs at UTSA for three years.

Using a laptop, students can print documents from anywhere on campus and release their print jobs from any of the PrintSpot locations on the Main Campus and Downtown Campus. Mobile printing will be introduced later this year.

How do you use PrintSpot?

If you are in a student computer lab or anywhere on campus, you can use PrintSpot to release your print job in the lab or at any of the 21 PrintSpot remote locations. To send documents to be printed, install on your laptop the PrintSpot print package, and send your documents to the central print queue (called PRINTSPOT).

>> Download the PrintSpot software.

Once your document is in the print queue, you can go to any PrintSpot location, swipe your UTSACard (or type in your UTSA user ID and passphrase) and release your document to that printer. When using the PrintSpot release stations, you will draw from the 200 free pages that all registered students are allotted each semester for printing.
