If you only have the data you want to print on a USB thumbdrive, please go to the photocopy shop or room in NUS Central Library to print. Alternatively, you can book one of the infocommon pcs in Central Library to print to our network printers

You can also print from your laptop using the following settings. Payment at most libraries is by cashcard or ezlink card. Printing in color is also available, please select the correct printer. 

 Please note that like most printing facilities in NUS, you will need to be a current NUS student or staff with a NUSnet ID to do any printing. NUS alumni with printing and scanning needs should instead visit the Alumni Service Centre.

For questions on U-Town Printing instead. For printing questions with regards to other labs, please approach the approporiate staff of these labs. We regret we are unable to assist.

To print from your laptop, first login into NUS wireless network.

Central Library (For Windows & Mac Users)

  Instructions are available here.

All other libraries other than Central LIbrary (For Windows & Mac Users)

For other operating systems & other issues

For users with other operating systems (e.g. Linux etc), please consult the student assistant at InfoCommons and/or photocopy vendor.

You can also counsult the student assistant at the InfoCommons and/or the photocopy vendor if you have trouble connecting your laptop to the printers


Once you have sent your print jobs, you can proceed to the print release stations at Central Library InfoCommons.

  1. For Windows 7 users, after typing "\\YIH-CLBC-SVR", you will be asked your credential. Enter "nusstu\(your NUS ID)" as username and your NUS password as password. Only then you can select any printer.
