Using SmartPrint with Windows and Mac OS X

Using SmartPrint with Windows

The newest version of SmartPrint has only two print queues that need to be set up: B&W and Color. Simply send your print job to one of these print queues and release your print job at any on-campus SmartPrint printer of appropriate type (B&W or Color) by swiping your ACCESS Card regardless of its location.

  1. Download the SmartPrint Windows installer (Windows Software link) and run it. 
    (Note that you may receive a security warning if you’re using Internet Explorer. If you do, click on the Actions button and then click on the down arrow next to More Options. From that list, choose Run anyway.  If you receive a Sophos warning, click on Allow this file.)

  2. Click on the Install button. Once the SmartPrint software is installed, click on the Finish button.
  3. To print to a SmartPrint printer, print your document as usual. In the printer selection box, choose either the SmartPrint BW Printer (for black-and-white print jobs) or the SmartPrint Color Printer (for color print jobs).
  4. In the Print Job Details screen, enter in your Santa Clara University Username (the one you use to access Gmail, Camino, etc.) (e.g. JSmith) and click Print.
  5. Go to any SmartPrint printer on campus and swipe your ACCESS card. You will see any print jobs associated with your username. Select the job you want to print and press the Print button on the release station screen.
