The following will show how to print from an App State lab computer to the Pharos printers located across campus.

These instructions are for all App State lab computers, including the library. For a list of Pharos printer locations, visit Pharos Printer Locations.

Before sending a print request, please be sure to preview what you will be printing to ensure that you only print the pages you desire. This is especially important when printing pages from a website since you will be charged for the number of pages printed.

Step 1: Send your document to the printer as you normally would. The default printer, “LAB M606DN Printer” on PC and “ASU-Lab-HP LaserJet M606” on Mac, should automatically be selected. Print jobs can be submitted to the color printer by selecting the HP 5550DN printer. Once you submit the print job, a window will pop up asking you to enter either your App State username or the 9-digit code printed on the front of the guest Appalachian Express card you have purchased.

         Enter your ASU username (e.g, doeja) if using your AppCard at the release station or the 9-digit code on the front of the guest Appalachian Express card if it will be used at the release station.

Step 2: Next, go to the Pharos Uniprint Release Station and swipe your AppCard or Guest Express Card to log in. You may need to move the mouse first or hit Enter to wake the station up. If you get an error that says “The account could not be found,”  try to swipe your card again.

Step 3: Once logged into the release station, you should see the list of print jobs that match the card used to log in to the release station, as shown below.  If you do not see your print job, please make sure that you have entered the correct information when you sent the print job from the client pop-up.


Step 4: Press the “ESC” button on the keyboard or press the “Logoff” button with your mouse on the screen to log out of the release station.

NOTE: If you do not release your print job, it will be deleted from the print queue in one hour.
