When SOE-owned devices are issued to faculty and staff, their primary printer is automatically added based on work location. Additional printers can be added if needed. Follow the steps below to add.

NOTE: Direct access to shared network printers will only be granted to SOE faculty and staff that are using SOE-owned devices. Printing from non-SOE-owned devices to select network shared printers is available to SOE faculty and staff (including students who are SOE employees) via Web Print.

EdIT maintains shared network printers that can be used by faculty and staff for printing directly from SOE-owned devices. Printers are available throughout Peabody Hall, at the SCALE offices at Carr Mill Mall, and at the Carolina Center for Educational Excellence (CCEE) at Smith Middle School. These printers include:
