Engineering uses 'print release stations' in the computer labs. When you send a job to a printer, if from your laptop, a Citrix 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)

If you are looking to print from your laptop visit this page: https://it.engineering.oregonstate.edu/adding-engineering-printers-your-wireless-laptop

The Print Queue

The name of the printer is COEPrint on the server winprn.engineering.oregonstate.edu.
It is added automatically when logged into computer labs and Citrix 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.
