Wireless Printing Instructions

You can set up your laptop or other wireless device to print wirelessly to libraries' printers.  Not all operating systems can connect to the wireless printer.  The operating systems that will connect to the wireless printing are the following: Windows 8, Windows 7, and Mac OS X 10.10.x.  See instructions below for a specific operating system. 


Wireless printing at the libraries is not an automatic feature for laptops and other mobile devices.  You will need to set up the printer connection before being able to send your document(s)/file(s) to the printer.

Please make sure you are connected to the University of Manitoba's Wireless Internet before setting up the wireless printing connection. If you are having problems connecting to the wireless, see the Can't Connect to Wireless section of this page.
