Printer Support Policy

Please view our updated printer support policy that will be effective from February 23, 2024.

Background & Scope

This policy establishes a baseline support model for printing provided to the faculty, staff, and grad students in the Poole College of Management departments, units, and programs.  This policy will provide information and guidelines for what level of support users should expect for various printers and copiers.

For this policy, we group devices into three types of categories:

  • Shared College Provided Multifunction Printer (MFPs) and Copier- MFPs and Printers purchased or leased by Poole College, fully supported by the IT department, located throughout the college in shared locations intended to be available as a resource to the entire faculty, staff, and approved guests of Poole College
  • Office/Personal Printers- Printers located in individual offices, not intended to be shared with multiple users. These are small desktop models that can be connected directly to a computer via a USB cable or registered on the network. 
  • Wolfcopy/Wolfprint- Printers are located in shared locations specifically for undergraduate students and are supported, managed, and maintained by OIT/Wolfcopy. 

Information about purchasing printers and necessary supplies is also included in this policy.
