Kenyon provides many networked printers for student and employee use. Public lab printers are available to any Kenyon user with a network account, while printers in College offices are available only to members of that department.

You may configure your computer so that it can access a networked printer that is close in your office or residence hall. You can even set up several networked printers for your use. This gives you the option of printing to other nearby printers if the closest printer becomes unavailable.

Windows Printing

If you use a Windows computer, before you can set up a networked printer, you must know the name of the printer. Windows printing is managed via "print queues" which have been set up for each printer on Kenyon's print server, \\printers.kenyon.edu. Each print queue keeps track of the status and progress of the print jobs sent to it. A list of the public printers accessible to Windows computers is included below.

Note: All Windows printer queues, both public and departmental, reside on the printers.kenyon.edu server.

Mac Printing

If you use a Mac computer, before you can set up a networked printer for your computer, you must know the type or model of printer and its domain name (e.g. cha2pr1.kenyon.edu) or IP address.

If you are a new Kenyon faculty or staff member, you can find out the name of the printer(s) for your office area by asking the department's administrative assistant. If you are a new student using a public lab, public lab computers are already configured to print to the printer(s) in the lab.
