At some time or another, we must all print something out. The ODU CS Department provides printers for both student and faculty use. To use these printers on a personal computer, or if you don't see them listed on a lab computer, you must map them.

Mapping in Windows 7

Open Windows Explorer (where you browse your files), and in the address bar type \\print.cs.odu.edu like in the following picture:

Press enter. If this is your first time doing this, you will be prompted for your username and password as the next picture shows. For your username enter CS\<your_username> where <your_username> is your CS account username. For the password, enter your Windows CS account password:

Now you should see a list of available printers. To connect to a printer, simply right click it, and when the context menu shows up, click the Connect button:

Once you click connect, your computer will begin installing drivers in order for you to use the printer. Once everything has been installed, you will now be able to print from the printer.

Which Printers Am I Allowed To Use?

Although you will see a list of printers throughout the CS Department, each printer is meant for certain groups of people. Please consult this list before using any printer to prevent having any problems.
