Brandeis partners with Ricoh to provide campus with all-in-one machines that handle printing, copying, faxing, and scanning.
These multifunction machines enable members of the Brandeis community to:
- Release a print job to any copier on campus by swiping a Brandeis ID Card or by entering a username and password
- Print from a cellphone or mobile device
- Fax from any copier
- Print confidentially and securely from shared copiers
- Utilize new technology and best practice in print management
- Reduce wasted paper
The new machines are part of a larger program that will help Brandeis reduce print waste and our associated carbon footprint. Currently, the university uses approximately 100,000 pounds of paper every year, creating a carbon footprint of more than 150 metric tons of CO2-equivalent, the same as burning 17,000 gallons of gasoline.
The new program will help reduce paper usage an estimated 30% by increasing duplex printing and reducing abandoned print jobs.
Installation of new devices around campus has been completed.
To setup your account for the first time, you will need your Brandeis ID Card. The first time you register the card, you will need to scan your card and then enter your UNet and password (same as logging into Gmail). After that, you can either just swipe your card or you can login with your Unet and password.
To login, you will EITHER swipe your card OR enter your credentials.
If you have any printed jobs, they will appear in your queue and you can click print from there.
If you are making copies/scans you will need to click Device Functions.
