As a visitor, you can print at CERN and you do not need a CERN account but your device needs to be registered at CERN and connected either to the CERN network or to Eduroam - both are equivalent (see Laptop section)
There are different possibilities to print at CERN as a visitor depending on your Operating System:
If you are a visitor it doesn't matter which kind of device you have - laptop, smartphone, tablet with any operating system, as soon as it is connected to the CERN network and you have a mail account (no need to be a CERN email account !) , we strongly encourage you to use the Mail2Print service , (in particular in case of a short visit) which allows you to print very easily just sending an email. For instructions please read here.
If you insist in installing the printer on your device :
- If you are using Windows 7 or higher, Download & execute the following application
- For a Linux Laptop, please go here.
- If you have a Mac you can either use the printservice or you can find here the instructions about how to install a printer manually.
on CERN desktops ** (you need to be admin or root on your machine)
- on a CERN Mac computer:, please install and use the Self-Service application or alternatively https://printservice.web.cern.ch/printservice
- on a CERN Windows computer: https://espace.cern.ch/winservices-help/Printing/ConfiguringPrinters/Pages/AddOrRemovePrinterOnWin7.aspx
- on a CERN Linux computer: (You need to be authorised): sudo /usr/sbin/lpadmincern printername --add
All our printers are 2-sided printers. Please limit the use of the colour printer to real needs.
