The library offers two convenient ways to print.
NKU's Pay-for-Print option lets you print to any campus Pharos printer from your own device. For more details, see Pay-for-Print.
Students can use their NKU username and password to print to floors 1, 3, 4, and the Loggia. When logging in, choose the "Steely Library Labs" profile to default to the nearest printer. To locate the closest printer, view maps for floor one, floor three, and floor four. You also have the option to upload your documents to NKU's Print Center. Look for the Print Center icon located on the desktop, or link to Pay-for-Print. For more about printing see Printing for Students.
