Google Cloud print is a service that allows you to print from your phone, tablet or laptop. This service allows users to print from clients such as Google Chrome, email, and Google Drive.

Adding Printers

***IMPORTANT *** It will only allow you to link the accounts while you are on campus.

If you only sign into your device with your non-IASTATE account, the first time you print you will receive an email from cloudprint@iastate.edu. It will prompt you to add the printer and also link your non-IASTATE account with your IASTATE account. This is necessary for you to be able to print. It is important that you add printers while on campus.

Once you finish linking your accounts, you should be able to print from Google Docs, Google Chrome, and other Google-supported applications. For users who authenticate through an IASTATE account, the system should work seamlessly.
