Print on the Go

Students can submit print requests and pick up their documents at any Print on the Go location.

Overview

Print on the Go allows students to submit print requests wirelessly and then print the documents at any Print on the Go print station location. This service also gives eligible Temple University students the opportunity to take advantage of their free printing quota.

Print on the Go saves time, as it eliminates the need to transfer files to a USB drive or upload them to OWLbox or Google Docs for printing. Also, students don't have to wait for a lab computer to become available.

Temple offers three types of Print on the Go services:

  • Print on the Go Mobile
  • Print on the Go Web
  • Print on the Go Classic
