Campus ID cards are required for printing inside of SINC Sites and at any Pharos Printing Station.

Black & White Printing:

When logged into a SINC Site computer, you will be able to send print jobs to the Pharos Release Stations. Going to File then Print or using keyboard commands (Ctrl + P on a Windows computer and Command + P on a Mac) will bring up the printing menu. The default printer should read "mainq_netid," which will send your print jobs to the Pharos Queue.  Note, this will only send your print job to a black and white printer. From there, all you need to do is swipe your Stony Brook University ID card at any Pharos Release Station and select print. Your print jobs will be released on the nearest printer.

Color Printing:

When logged into a SINC Site computer, you will be able to send print jobs to the Pharos Release Stations. Going to File then Print or using keyboard commands (Ctrl + P on a Windows computer and Command + P on a Mac) will bring up the printing menu. The default printer should read "mainq_color," which will send your print jobs to the Pharos Queue.  Note, this will only send your print job to a color printer. From there, all you need to do is swipe your Stony Brook University ID card at a Pharos Release Station connected to a color printer and select print. Color printers may be found at the Melville Library SINC Site, the Central Reading Room, and HSC Coller Lab

Printer Locations:

To find the location of a printer, please refer to the map of labs and printer locations.

Please note that print jobs sent from SINC Site computers will stay in the Pharos Queue for 2 hours. Print jobs sent from Print From Anywhere will stay in the Pharos Queue for 24 hours.

**Remember to print double sided whenever possible, it saves $$$, quota and trees.
