If you are a windows 10 user, you must first install 'Bonjour for Windows' - There is a link here.
|Please note: we recommend upgrading to Windows 11 for a more secure experience.|
Once Bonjour for Windows is installed, go to your add/remove printers dialogue – just type “printers” in your search bar and one option will be “Add a Printer or scanner”
Then you should see this:
Clicking on “Add A Printer or Scanner” next you should see both the printers on campus available to you:
Double click on the one you want to install (you can repeat the process if you want to add another) and you will see that it is “connecting” – it is also downloading drivers, so this may take a minute or so.
And then you will see that it is ready, and available in your list of printers:
Under Windows 11 setup is much simpler. Just type “printers” in to your search bar, and click on Add a Printer or Scanner:
Now click on “Add Device”:
You should see the two printers available to you:
Click on “add device” and, after the drivers have downloaded, which may take a moment or a minute, so you will see it as “connecting”
And then the printer will be listed:

Click the PLUS sign and you will see the LIS printers that are available to you:
Double click on the printer that you would like to add – again this may take a moment while the drivers are checked and downloaded if necessary, and then you will have an “add” option in the bottom right hand side:
Once this is complete, the printer will be listed and ready for you to use:
