COVID-19 Fall 2020 - how to print

While classes are online and most spaces on campus are closed, here is information from Hostos IT about how you can print:

The college has created a temporary “Print/Copy Site” in the C building on the ground floor.

 In order to comply with the CUNY Safe Campus guidelines, the location has been set up with 12 socially-distanced workstations and one Color and one Black-and-White printer for our students.

 Appointments will be necessary in order to access this service.

 What will I need to use the printers?

 You will need at least your Hostos e-mail address, preferably your Hostos ID card, and funds available for Print/Copy in your Caiman Card account. The college assigns your account funds at the start of each semester to allow you to Print/Copy.

 What if I use up all of the college assigned funds?

 You can add more funds to your Caiman Card by either downloading the app or logging on to this website with your Hostos e-mail and password. Please note: for your initial deposit, you must log in to the website; you can use the app later for adding more funds or checking your account balance.

How do I sign up?

Please follow all the steps below, and at the end when you click “Confirm” you will receive an e-mail confirmation to your Hostos e-mail account which you will need to show to Public Safety and the IT/SCC staff in order to use the service.

 Start by selecting “Succeed@Hostos” in the Login To drop-down menu on our website

What should I know/have before I go to campus?

 Glad you asked! There are number of important things you need to know before you come to the campus.

  1. The Print/Copy site is located on the Ground Floor of the C Building (450 Grand Concourse) after you pass the turnstiles 

  2. Review the Safe Campus/Know Before You Go policies and procedures. This includes downloading and completing the Daily Symptom Checker via the CUNY Everbridge app the day of your appointment, and following all of the posted campus rules 

  3. You will be asked to show proof of your appointment, as well as your campus ID 

  4. After passing through the turnstiles, you must check in with the staff so that they can assign you to a workstation, which will be numbered 

  5. You MUST follow the building/floor signage such as the one-way arrows, social distancing floor markings, etc. as well as any verbal instructions by campus personnel 

  6. You will be asked to use a sanitizing wipe on the keyboard of the laptop after use, and hand sanitizer before releasing your print/copy material at the printers. The college has installed multiple dispensers which are conveniently accessible in the area 

  7. Appointments are 30 minutes. Please ensure you complete your work in that time. You may create additional appointments. You may be asked to clear a workstation if students are waiting for their appointment 

  8. You are responsible for the use of your Print/Copy funds. If you’re unsure on how to properly print/copy, please ask a Staff member *before* you try to release your job at the printer. No refunds will be issued unless it is due to a hardware issue.
