Pharos Mobile Printing – Instructions And FAQ’s

Mobile printing is available for those with a valid ace account and rebel cash. This service is not available for people with guest printing cards at this time.

Here is the process for submitting and releasing a print job to Pharos Mobile Print:

  1. Send Document to Print – Open your UNLV student email account. Send or forward the document(s) to be printed (as attachments) to the email address libprinter@unlv.edu
    Only the attachments in the emails can be configured to print. The email itself will not print. 
     
  2. Receive reply email from MobilePrint – After the email is submitted, you will receive a return email showing a list of submitted documents from Pharos Mobile Printing. It also contains brief instructions on how to print the document(s).
    **If you are using a non UNLV email account, you will receive an email asking you to register your email address and you will need your ACE account to log in.
     
  3. Release the Documents – Proceed to any designated mobile Pharos Printer. Scan your student ID in the card reader: 
  • Identify your print job by your ACE account
  • Press the [Print Release] icon on the printer station screen for each document you want to print.
