Step-by-step guide

The Pharos Print app allows you to easily submit content from your iOS or Android device to a secure print queue:

  1. Download the Pharos Print app to your iOS or Android device.
  2. Connect Pharos Print to the library Pharos MobilePrint server.

    Server Name:
    Server Port: 443

  3. The app will display a User Authentication screen, enter your EID and password.
  4. You can now manage your submitted jobs on the app, and you may submit jobs that work with the “Open In” feature of iOS or the Upload button for Android.

Having Trouble Printing?

Here are a couple of workarounds if the method above isn't working:

  1. Submit your document via one of the methods described and release your prints at a non-SOA printer (the FAC is the closest option).
  2. Make sure you have a BevoPay account (you do not have to add money to it and can still pay for printing using library funds, just accept the agreement here), and print your documents to UT Print using the drivers method above. Once installed, these drivers will act like a printer connected to your computer. After printing, it will request your EID, password, and for you to confirm the charge. You can then release the print from any UT Print station, including those at the SOA.

Note: Both MyPrintCenter web submission and driver submission require access to the UT network – either by being on campus or via a VPN connection.

Faculty & Staff should print via the LAITS print server. SOA Faculty & Staff printers should be automatically added to your computer. Please call LAITS at 512-471-5000 if they aren't in your Printers list.
