How to Use MPrint

Several methods of using MPrint are available to print at Campus Computing Sites and to MiWorkspace printers. 

Follow Me Printing

When you print using Follow Me, your document will be stored for 24 hours in a "virtual queue.” When you are near a Follow Me printer, use the MPrint mobile app, swipe your Mcard (select printers only), or log in with your uniqname and password to release your document from the printer.

Set up Follow Me Printing

Setting your computer up to use Follow Me Printing is a one-time process. The virtual print queue will appear as a printer once you set up Follow Me Printing. See instructions for installing Follow Me Printing.

MPrint Website

Visit the MPrint website to upload documents from a computer or mobile device, or select documents from a variety of storage services, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and MFile IFS/AFS. Using the site, you may search for a printer by name, location, or feature.

Set up MPrint Locker

Use the MPrint Locker to store your documents quickly and easily for later use. Documents saved to your MPrint Locker can be sent to available printers via the MPrint web application.

To enable the MPrint Locker, you must first activate Box, Dropbox, or MFile IFS/AFS to access your MPrint account. When you enable the MPrint Locker, a folder named “MPrint” is created in the storage account you chose. Documents uploaded to the MPrint Locker will be placed in this folder.
