Question about printers

Someone sent a message to our TXT feedback service, asking “which printer + scan +copy I should buy?” The answer is, we recommend not buying a printer/copier if you live on-campus. With Google Cloud Print available from any device and the availability of printers/scanner/copiers throughout campus it just isn’t needed.

However, if you live off-campus it can be handy. In that case, ITS does not recommend any specific model, but generally any brand name (HP, Brother, Samsung, and others) and we do generally recommend laser, having a lower cost per page.  Other features like wireless printing can cause problems in residence halls, and may not work at all with our campus network; but are again handy if you live in a private residence.

Thanks for the question!
