Fax from a Sharp MFP

You are able to send a fax to local, long distance, and international fax numbers from multi-functioning printers (MFPs). 

There currently is no direct "printing" charge for printing faxes, but there may be charges for long distance calls associated with a fax job. If you need to send a fax to a long distance or international number but do not have a long distance code, you will need to request one through our Telephone Service request form. 

How to Send a Fax

  1. Log in to the MFP by swiping your ID or using the built-in keyboard.
  2. If prompted, choose your account.
  3. You see the home screen.  Swipe left or press the arrow to go to Page 2.Image displaying the menu options after logging in to a printer.

  4. Choose “Fax”

  6. Use the keyboard to enter your fax number, then “@fax.stthomas.edu”. Click OK.  Use the pre-defined button that will add “fax.stthomas.edu” for you.
    Note: In this example, I am sending a fax internally to another St. Thomas area, so I used the 5-digit campus extension. 

    For on-campus numbers, enter the 5-digit extension: eg 12345@fax.stthomas.edu
    For local numbers, enter ‘8’ followed by the area code and number: eg. 86515558888@fax.stthomas.edu
    For long distance, enter ‘8’ followed by the area code and number followed by your long distance code: eg. 8155577777779999999@fax.stthomas.eduImage displaying a shortcut button to add the fax ending.
  7. Click Start.
