Your account balance will be displayed on the website for your convenience.

How long will the print job be available after it has been uploaded?

Can I access the printing website from my Smartphone?

Can I still print directly from computers in the labs, Library, and Student Union?

Yes, you will still have the ability to print directly from computers in the labs, Library, and Student Union; however, you will notice a change in the process. Currently, you are asked to enter a job name and password in order to print. After the change on September 29th, you will be asked to enter a job description and your LancerNet ID (the same credentials you use with myLongwood and Canvas). Note: You may enter whatever your like as the job description or leave it blank. It is used as a guide to help you identify your print job.
