Steps to submit and release a print job to Pharos Mobile Print

Make sure your mobile device is on the Eduroam or UNLV-sponsored wifi networks.

Step 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
  • Only the attachments in the emails can be configured to print. The email itself will not print.

Step 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).
  • Note, you will need your ACE login to register your email address if you have not printed in the library.

Step 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] icon on the printer station screen for each document you want to print.
