Lesley University Desktop Printer Policy

The university does not allow people to have desktop printers.

The purpose of this policy is to:

  • Reduce the cost of consumables and energy by using more efficient printing devices
  • Ensure utilization of the University multi-function printer fleet whenever possible
  • Support green initiatives by reducing the number of printing devices 

Desktop Printer Purchasing

Information Technology (ext. 8770), or can assist users with setting up Papercut on faculty and staff computers which would allow them to print to any Tobisha printer.

Any bulk printing jobs can be done at the University Copy Center (ext. 8980). The Copy Center can accept color and black and white print jobs via email requests and will promptly deliver the result to your office. Please contact them at for more information. 

Confidential Printing 

All staff members occasionally have the need to print a document they consider confidential. While printing these documents requires care by the staff member to ensure that they are not left on the device once they are printed, confidential printing needs are not justification for a personal printer.   

To help protect your documents in this environment, you can print to any Toshiba printer, since your printing job will not print until you go to the Toshiba printer of your choice and tap your Lesley ID to release the printing job. If you don't have your Lesley ID on you, you can log into the printer with your Lesley credentials to release the job.
