Purchasing a printer for own use

You may also purchase a printer for you or your group and have it managed by Computing. That printer needs to be: 

  • Laser. Inkjet printers tend to have too many operational issues in a heavy-use environment and are not supported.
  • Network capable.
  • Duplex capable (can print on both sides of paper). Duplex is often available as an option. While it costs a bit more, this option is obviously environmentally friendly especially for large documents. Look for a "d" in the printer name - such as HP LaserJet Pro 400 color Printer M451dn.

Although not a requirement, we recommend Hewlett-Packard (HP) laser printers.

Note: SEAS Computing is using a Managed Print Service to assist in managing our printer environment. In order for us to provide the best service possible and to see the most efficient use of our printers, we must be part of the acquisition process for any new printer.
