Open Access Lab Mobile Printing

Mobile printing enables students to conveniently email print jobs as attachments to laser printers from their mobile devices or personal laptop computers. There is no installation or any download required to perform a mobile print. Students, however, will need a valid Cal State LA One Card with a credit balance adequate to cover the print job cost. The cost of printing is the same as when logged on to an Open Access Lab computers.

Note: Students cannot queue documents other than their own. Print jobs will be deleted after two hours from the time the email was sent.

If you have questions or need assistance using the mobile printing service, please ask any Open Access Lab Consultants or call the ITS Help Desk at 323-343-6170.
