Touch Free Printing

You can print touch free with the following method:

  • Upload your print job to MyPrintCenter.
  • From a mobile device use the Pharos Print app (server, port 443). You can download the app from your phone's app store. Log into the app with your UMD username and password.

UCard has a way to manage funds so that you don't have to go to a machine to pay. Use the GET app.

Using the GET app, you can manage your UMD campus card accounts, including adding money to your card without going to a machine. Please note that it will take approximately 15-20 minutes after you add money to your card for the first time for it to register in the printing system.
