Mac OSX 10.10 or newer (wired or WiFi)

Printing from desktop or laptop Macs via either the wired network or the secured eduroam WiFi network.

The following instructions are tested to work on the Mac operating systems currently supported by the University and Apple, namely OS 10.10 (Yosemite) and later. They should work on earlier iterations of macOS, although the University does not support any issues arising on those operating systems. They also assume that the Macs are connected either to the University wired network or to the eduroam WiFi network.

Personal MacBook users

Users of personal Mac laptops have the following 3 separate options for printing:

1. EveryonePrint

Use the EveryonePrint service to upload files into your Cloud printing queue for you to then release on open-access Xerox multi-function devices around the University.

2. UoE Cloud Printing Package

a) Download, unzip and run the UoE Cloud Printing package to add the University cloud-mono and cloud-colour print queues, allowing you to print directly to the Cloud printing service using the included Xerox drivers, which add more functionality and control over the output.

b) At 'Hold for Authentication', click the resume button, enter your University username (UUN) and then enter the password that you would use when logging on to a Uni computer. Make sure 'Remember this password in my keychain' is checked so that you do not need to enter your details each time you print and, finally, press 'OK'.

c) Release the print jobs on open-access Xerox multi-function devices around the University. For more on this service, see Cloud Printing.

3. Manually add a queue

Contact the IS Helpline, giving the location of the Xerox printer you wish to print to so they can advise of the server and queue pathname you require, then use it with the instructions at Manually adding a print queue on a Mac.

Users on University-supported desktop or laptop Macs

University-supported Macs should have local Xerox printers and Cloud queues automatically added to them. However, if you wish to add a queue that is not included by default, please contact the IS Helpline, giving the location of the Xerox printer you wish to print to so they can advise of the server and queue pathname you require, then use it with the instructions at Manually adding a print queue on a Mac.
