Install the Wireless Printers on Mac

Images on this page are representative of what will be displayed during the installation process. All print jobs must be released from a Print Release Station next to the printer.

Please complete all 8 steps and send a test print to ensure everything is setup correctly.

1. First you need to lookup your Print Release username. Login to MyWashburn and under the "News & Events" click on the link to the right that says "Lookup WUAD / Office 365 Email and Calendar Account Information."  Below will show your Print Release Station username. Write your username down. You will need it later when you print and release your print jobs.
