Connecting to a Printer

DCP has a wide variety of printers throughout the college. Most of our printers belong to a print server so anyone within DCP can connect to them.

  • If you are a Windows user, below are instructions on how to install a printer.
  • If you are Mac user, you will have to submit a ticket to DCP Tech Help to have the printer installed.
  • If you have any issues with the process, please do not hesitate to call or submit submit a ticket.
