In order to print to one of the public printers in Fine Hall from a Windows computer (for example your laptop) you can use the windows print server finehallprint. Note that you can access and use Fine Hall printers only within Fine Hall.

These are publicly available printers:

Windows printer name Printer location Printer type
\\finehallprint\fine205 205 Fine Hall HP LaserJet 4250 Duplex
\\finehallprint\fine219 219 Fine Hall cluster HP LaserJet 4300 Duplex
\\finehallprint\fine305 305 Fine Hall (restricted access outside business hours) HP LaserJet 4350 Duplex
\\finehallprint\fine305pcl 305 Fine Hall (restricted access outside business hours) HP LaserJet 4350 Duplex PCL driver
\\finehallprint\fine511 5th floor Fine Hall, outside offices 504 and 505 Dell W5300 Duplex printer
\\finehallprint\fine811 8th floor Fine Hall, outside offices 804 and 805 HP LaserJet 4300 Duplex
\\finehallprint\fine1111 11th floor Fine Hall, outside offices 1104 and 1105 Dell W5300 Duplex printer

While you may find other printers on finehallprint they are private printers reserved for use by their owners so please do not try to use them.

Note also that all of Fine Hall printers default to duplex (double sided) printing so you may have to change your printer settings if you want to print single sided.
