First Time Printer Setup


Once you are connected to Eduroam, connecting to a printer is pretty simple.

Please follow this short guide based on your operating system type. If you are a Linux, *nix, or ChromeOS user, please contact the digital team for more support. Of course, if you have any problems, please let the digital team know – helpdesk@lis.ac.uk is your friend.

 


WINDOWS 10

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:

WINDOWS 11

Under Windows 11 setup is much simpler. Just type “printers” in to your search bar, and click on Add a Printer or Scanner:

Click this and you will see a list of any (or there may be none) of the printers you already have.

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:
