Printing: What is FollowMe Printing?

FollowMe printing is a more secure and convenient way of of printing. 

It has some great benefits such as:

  • Printing to a St. Thomas printer from across campus or off-campus
  • Confidential materials you don't want sitting out at a printer before your arrive to pick it up
  • No need to install any software to print (but you can add it directly to your laptop if you want)
  • No need to know the exact printer number to send it to (which means you won't send it to the wrong one)

Simply choose FollowMeBlack or FollowMeColor when you go to File > Print (depending on if you need black and white or color prints) and then release it at any MFP.

How it Works

When you print to the FollowMe queue, your document is held in a virtual server online for up to 24 hours until you are physically at the printer and choose to release it.
