  • You have to be connected to NTNUs network to print, either via VPN, Eduroam, NTNU MA or a network cable.
  • You have to have enough available funds in your printing allowance account.
  • Some computer labs are configured to not allow installation of new printers, and you therefore have to use the pre-installed printer(s).

How to connect to a printer

The printers at computer labs are typically connected to a combined print queue for several printers. This means that when you are sending a printing job to the printer, and then sweep your card at a one of the computer lab printers connected to that queue, you will be able to access your printing job there.

All NTNU printers with card readers are available on:

  • NTNU-print


The following procedure is usually only necessary once.

Open in a webbrowser.

Click the Install printer button.

Select your operating system, usually the right operating system will be pre-selected if your browser supports this.

Click Download package, once the file is downloaded start installing.

Printing in colour

To reduce the cost for students, many printers on NTNU print are set up to force black and white printing. You can change this by following the steps below:


  • Select Print in your application (E.g. word), select Printer NTNU-Print, and click Printer Properties or Preferences.
  • From the drop-down menu Color Mode, select Color.


  • Check that you are connected to internet.
  • Run Windows Update and install all available Windows updates.
  • Make sure you have enough money remaining in your printing allowance.*If you're still having trouble, contact the [[http://Orakel Support Services|Oracle Support Service]] for help.
