UPrint - Mobile

Due to the emergence of a variety of new devices changing the way people do things from a mobile perspective, "UPrint Mobile" was developed to allow users to submit print jobs from any email-enabled device, using their *University of Miami-issued email account. This includes smartphones, tablets, laptops, and PCs, regardless of their operating system.

It is possible to view PDF's, office documents, and image files using such devices, but options to print them in the past were limited. Nearly all mobile devices now have email and/or web browser capability. UPrint's "UPrint Mobile" leverages these capabilities to offer this new printing solution!

Users can now print a document by sending an email via their University of Miami-issued email account to a "UPrint Mobile" email address: UPrintBW@miami.edu for black & white and UPrintColor@miami.edu for color. "UPrint Mobile" will identify users via their email address and login credentials to ensure that only they can view, print, or delete jobs they send. When the user authenticates to any UPrint-enabled multi-function device, the job can be released to print.

A print job will be created and held, pending release, for each attachment contained in the email. If the email contains a body of text, it will also generate a print job the user can choose to release.
