Campus networking issues- update

As many of you are aware, we have been experiencing problems with the campus network such as extremely slow connections, and at times, outages in loading content. Computing Services has been working late into the evenings to identify and troubleshoot the issue. We continue to monitor the network closely and are working as quickly as possible to eliminate the issue. As we make progress, Computing Services will notify the campus via email, our blog and announcements on the campus announcements web page.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused and are doing everything in our power to fix the issue as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and support.

Information regarding improvements to printing in computer labs

First of all, we hope everyone’s semester is off to a good start. We at Computing Services wanted to let all returning students know of some major changes and improvements we made to printing in the student computer labs over the summer. Below are the details:

Due to requests from students, we have increased the semester-based print credit from $25 up to $30 per semester. Students have also been asking us to be more “green” so we have enabled double-sided printing (duplex) for all printers in the labs. In addition, to save print credit, we are charging the same price for a double-sided black and white print as we used to charge for single-sided (.05 per page).

Another request we have received is to provide more information on what was printed. Now when a student logs in to both PCs and Macs there is a green floating window called PaperCut that shows them their current balance. This gets updated every time a student prints. By clicking on the Details link on the PaperCut window it opens a web browser. Once the student enters their username and password, they can view more detailed information, Transaction History, Transfer money to another user, and see Recent Print Jobs.

One final capability that students have asked for is the ability to use Web-Based printing. With the move to PaperCut, students can print from their residence hall, mobile device, or any Internet-connected device to any lab printer on campus. For more information on how to use Web print see:


As always, if you have any questions regarding this or anything else related to student technology on campus, please do not hesitate to call the ASU Computing Services Help Desk at 719-587-7741 or email us at computingservices@adams.edu

Have a great day!
