Extension of uPrint Service to PC Laboratories in Run Run Shaw Building and Old Library Building

We are pleased to inform our users that the uPrint service is now extended to PC laboratories in Room 103 of the Run Run Shaw Building (RR-103) and Room 134 of the Old Library Building (OLB-134).  One uPrint printer and one Add Value machine for purchasing of uPrint print units have been installed in RR-103 and OLB-134.  We are planning to add a second uPrint printer in RR-103 shortly to meet the high demand for printing there.   With uPrint, besides PCs inside the laboratories, students may also print from their own PC notebooks running Vista or Windows 7.  The configuration procedures and user guide for uPrint are available at http://www.its.hku.hk/documentation/guide/tl/lc/uprint.

Currently, both uPrint and PC lab printing are available in RR-103 and OLB-134.  As the systems supporting them are different, each user will have two separate print accounts.    A user may transfer  print units from the PC lab printing account to the uPrint account by following a simple procedure at http://www.its.hku.hk/help/print-utilities > Check Print Quotas & Transfer Print Unit from PC Lab Printing to uPrint after signing into the HKU Portal but not vice versa.   It is our plan to phase out PC lab printing in the near future.

If you have any questions or comments related to the uPrint service, please feel free to contact the undersigned.
