Can I use a wireless printer in the residence halls?


Residents are discouraged from using wireless printers in the residence hall, but if necessary, should consider connecting via a usb cable or flash drive.


The wireless functionality of wireless printers is discouraged in the residence halls.  The wireless broadcast of the printer may interfere with the broadcast signal of Purdue’s supported wireless networks, potentially degrading the service for surrounding users.  It is recommended that these printers have their wireless broadcast disabled and a connection be made using a USB cable or flash drive.
