Effective Saturday, March 14, OSU will move to a higher level of response that continues the essential operations of the university, but seeks to reduce the frequency of interactions among students, faculty, staff and visitors throughout all university campuses, centers, facilities and operations. Our focus is on continued university operations and social distancing.
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.

The Print Queue
The name of the printer is COEPrint on the server engrprn.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 1000 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 1000 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.
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:
At the Printer
The easiest method (but can result in waiting in line) is at the printer itself. Each printer is equiped 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, you need to be on OSU Access or OSU Secure wireless. Using the web browser on your smartphone, visit
You can also print from a laptop without having to install printer drivers.
