Library Printers

Wireless printing is available to all visitors, students, faculty and staff of SIU.  We have printers in over 30 buildings, including Morris Library, most computer labs, and study areas on campus.  You can print from home (off-campus) as well using the VPN connection. To use our printers you must have a SIU Network ID and "Debit Dawg" funds added to your student ID card. If you do not, a copy card can be purchased at Morris Library, the Student Center, and some Computer Learning Centers.

Xerox Phaser 8570DN (COLORQUBE) printers are located throughout campus.  They use green computing technology:  solid ink.  We have gone green with printing.  There is less waste (no printer cartridges) and a smaller carbon footprint.  Advanced color editing and Xerox color correction technology is also now available.

You can send your print job from your personal computer in your residence hall room, campus office or your wireless laptop. Your printout will remain in the queue for 2 hours.  You can then pick up your printout at any of our locations by typing in your SIU DAWG Tag # and swiping your Student ID Card.
