2. Select which printer you would like to print to. In the image below, I’ve selected the printer which happens to be closest to me. The options you have available will differ depending on which building you are assigned. If you don’t have printers appropriate to your building, or if you work in multiple buildings and would like to have other buildings added, please fill out a helpdesk ticket.
