Printing via Email or File Upload

Option 1: Send a Print via File Upload

To upload a file directly to the OnePrint device queue:

  1. Go to
  2. Upload your document(s)
  3. Select each document and use the settings in the lower right corner of the page to switch from B&W to color, double sided, or print multiple copies
  4. There is no "save" or "send" button. As soon as your document appears in this queue, you can release it from any printer

Option 2: Send a Print via Email

  1. Email an attachment from your VCU email account to:
    • (to print in black & white) 
    • (to print in color) 
  2. Wait for an email that says your print job is ready to be released
    • IMPORTANT: The file must be sent as an email attachment. It will not work if you use the "share" button in Google Docs because this only sends a link to the Google Doc.
