Printing at Fordham

Student (Pharos) Print Services

Access the Pharos print portal at remoteprint.fordham.edu/myprintcenter.

The University supports student printing through the Pharos print solution. Create your print document at libraries and labs and send it directly to Pharos for release and print or create your document on any personal computer upload or email it to Pharos.

Print jobs can also be submitted to Pharos from many mobile devices. In all cases, you can print your document at any Pharos release station. 

The document is only printed when you physically log in at the print location and select the job for print. You are only charged for jobs that you actually print. Unprinted jobs are deleted from the print queue after 10 hours. Pharos will print jobs with most common file extensions.

Cost per page: 
Black and white: $.05 cents
Color pages: $.25 cents

Print from desktops in Libraries and Labs

To print a file from a desktop computer in the libraries and labs, go to the print command or dialog box (in a Word or Google Doc, for example, you’d select “File > Print”) and then select the option “Print to Pharos.” The print job will be sent to and held in the Pharos database until you login to a Pharos workstation and opt to print or delete the job (unprinted jobs are automatically deleted after 10 hours). 

Library or lab personnel can provide detail print instructions. New users should check with library personnel prior to running their first Pharos print job.

Best Practices for Using Pharos Remote Print

  • Print requests must come from your Fordham email address or a guest Pharos account.
  • The following types of file formats can be printed by Pharos: Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF, Images, Text (CSV, RTF, and TXT), and Visio.
  • Email your document as an attachment (not to exceed 50MB in size).
  • More than one attachment may be sent in a single email.
  • Logos, signatures, and pictures will print on separate pages. These items should be deleted prior to printing.
  • Black and white is the default print setting for emailed print requests.
  • Request color and double-sided printing at the Pharos Print portal. Not all printer stations can accommodate these requests. Check your printer station in advance.
  • Files may take a few minutes to appear in the print database after being uploaded or emailed.
