Engineering uses 'print release stations' in the computer labs. When you send a job to a printer, if from your laptop, a Ctrix Xen session, or in the computer lab itself, the job is held until you release the job.
You can release print jobs with your ID or using a browser (see below)

The Print Queue
The name of the printer is COEPrint on the server winprn.engr.oregonstate.edu.
It is added automatically when logged into computer labs and Xen sessions.
See below for directions on printing to the queue from wireless devices.
Each currently enrolled student taking a class in the College of Engineering is allotted a print quota of 500 pages per academic term. This quota is for use only in College of Engineering labs and does not apply to other areas of campus. If your printing goes over 500 pages over the course of a given term, your OSU student account will be charged $.10 per page to their general OSU account. The sum of your printing will be charged at the end of each term.
What is a page?
A page is defined as a printed side of paper. If you print a one page document, it counts as one page. If you print a two page document in duplex, it prints two sides of a sheet of paper, so it counts as two pages.
After printing to COEPrint, a print job is held until you release it to one of the devices (print release stations).
You can do this on of three ways:
Via the Web:
At the Printer:
Each printer is equipped with a touch screen and a card swipe.
Using the desktop app (in computer labs and Xen Desktop)
You can also use your smart phone to release a job.
To set it up, first connect to EDUROAM or OSU Secure wifi.

If a print job fails to print, or the printer malfunctions, the job may still be charged against your quota. It's a very easy process to request a refund of those pages. Visit the following site:
