uoPrint: printing with ease

Printing, copying and scanning is now easier than ever. Students at the University of Ottawa can now use uoPrint on the go using a secure portal or at the 51 available machines located in the Morisset Library, labs, and other places on campus.

uoPrint is a system allowing you to print, copy and scan on campus from your computer or mobile device or the University’s computers and multifunction printers. To use it, login with your uoAccess credentials and all the printing options are at your fingertips. Your files will be queued for 8 hours so if you do not complete your request within this timeframe, it will be cancelled. You can also use any of the printing machines located around campus. They are always available within the hours of operation of the building where they are located.

For any questions or technical difficulties, contact the Service Desk.
