PiratePrint is a service that allows students to print from their personal computers from either on or off campus to a printing kiosk located inside the main entrance of the Austin building.

We are bringing students this convenient new service in response to the 2012 Student Technology Survey: 52% of respondents indicated they are more likely to use a printing station over a computer lab.
