Printing from MobilePrint

Mobileprint enables you to print from laptops and mobile devices when connected to the hillspot secure wireless network. Three options for printing are available: uploading a document using the My Print Jobs tab, printing out a web page using the Web Print tab and sending an attachment via email and then using the Email Print tab. 

Please follow the instructions below to:

  1. Use MobilePrint to send print jobs from your laptop or mobile device to the printers available from MobilePrint
  2. Use PrintRelease to release your print job through the web release client.   

You will need to release your print job and pick up your printout within 4 hours, as print jobs not released from the queue within 4 hours will be automatically deleted.

My Printers

The My Printers tab can be used to select your most frequently used printers.  Simply check off the box next to the printer and optionally give it a nickname, then only those selected printers will show up when printing documents.

The Print Release Web Client

If you’re on the go, you can continue to print from your mobile device using MobilePrint. However if you don’t have access to a mobile device and you are on a computer anywhere on campus, you can release your print jobs by navigating to the Print Release Web Client from any modern browser.

Please note, similar to MobilePrint, you must be connected to Hillspot to use the Print Release Web Client. To print using the Web Client:

  1. Log into https://printrelease.stonehill.edu/pcounterwebclient with your Stonehill username and password (ex. TSmith)
  2. Select the check box next to the print job you would like to release
  3. Select the “Print” button to print your document.
