Students can print in SINC Sites and other computer labs on campus, or by using Stony Brook's Print From Anywhere service.
All registered Stony Brook students can print 280 pages a week (Monday - Sunday) in the SINC Sites, Health Sciences Library, and Residential Computing Centers or by using the Print From Anywhere service. Funding for student printing comes from the Student Technology Fee that each student pays as part of their tuition. Stony Brook uses the Pharos system to manage printing.
In order to print, just send their print jobs to the Pharos Queue from a SINC Site computer, or from a personal computer using the Print From Anywhere service. Students need their Stony Brook University ID card to release their print jobs.
The Print From Anywhere service allows students to send print jobs to the SINC Site Print Queue from their own computers whether on campus or off campus. Students need to install the Pharos Client software on their personal machine(s). This software sets up a special printer on a student's personal computer that will allow them to send their documents to the Pharos Print Queue. Students can check the Print From Anywhere queue to see what print jobs are associated with their NetID.
Please note that when using Print From Anywhere from an off-campus location, users will need to access Stony Brook's Virtual Private Network before sending print jobs.
