Wireless Printing

GSA students and staff are now able to send files to print directly from their own device (laptop, tablet, smartphone etc). This User Guide will introduce you to the process.

Once you have sent a file to print from your device, you will be able to log on to any MFD (printer/photocopier) on the GSA campus to release your print job. Please note that you must be connected to the GSA WiFi network in order to be able to print wirelessly. For assistance, please consult the Connecting to GSA WiFi User Guide.
