Adding a Local Printer


I have a printer that only I am going to use. Does IT need to set it up?

WKU ITS only supports local printers that have been approved through the Managed Print program. If you would like to request an exception please fill out this online request.

ITS only needs to configure networked printers, which are used by multiple people. A local printer connects directly to a computer and is used only by the person at that computer. To install an approved local printer, use the following steps:

  1. Use a USB cable to connect the printer to the computer.
  2. The computer should automatically detect the printer and add it.
  3. If the printer came with software, you can insert the disc or thumb drive to install it.
