A new printing service is available this fall at NIU, according to an NIU Today article.

The Anywhere Printing service students can install software on their home computer or mobile device, which will allow them to send print jobs to any of the newly-posted print stations around campus, said Cindy Phillips, director of customer service for ITS, in NIU Today.

The print stations are shown on a map online and most of them are located outside ITS labs, according to NIU today.

According to the Anywhere Printing FAQ, over 20 locations on campus are available and can be accessed within 24 hours. Use of the printing service will require Huskie Bucks from an NIU OneCard or require using a Value Transfer Stations card. Print job fees are 7 cents for black-and-white pages and 25 cents for color pages.
