Print Wirelessly from Windows

This guide for PharmD student pharmacists describes how to print wirelessly from your personal Windows laptop to printers in rooms S956 and S1112 in the Medical Sciences Building at UCSF Parnassus campus. (Mac users: see Print Wirelessly from Mac.)

This configuration process installs print management software and printer drivers and adds printer devices to your laptop. You may uninstall the print management software, printer drivers, and printers when you no longer need to print wirelessly to these printers (e.g., after you graduate).

What you need

  • your MyAccess credentials

  • about 20 to 30 minutes

  • an internet connection

  • your computer

Install print management software called PaperCut

Because letting student pharmacists print for free is not financially sustainable, we require that you use software called PaperCut which accurately charges you for printing. (Our prices are lower than those at other campus locations. Also, other campus locations don’t use PaperCut, so you’ll need to set up separate accounts to print there.)
