Out on co-op or abroad? Here’s what you may have missed last semester….

Printing got easier

ITS has improved the printing experience over the last few months. Highlights include:

  • new printer driver software
  • expanded printing in Snell Library, including color printers
  • 5 new printers in the residence halls
  • simplified printer queue names and settings
  • duplex printing by default for black and white letter sized (8.5 x 11”)

More information on printing updates and how to download the new driver can be found here


To help the Northeastern community better utilize the different ITS-managed computer labs, we have implemented LabMaps. LabMaps is a system displaying which computer workstations are available and whether they are Mac or PC, and shows usage in the InfoCommons (first floor of Snell Library), InfoCommons 2 (second floor of Snell Library) and 54 Dodge. The system can be viewed online, or on the digital display on the Printer Circle in the InfoCommons.

More information on LabMaps can be found here

Library Reservation System

Students – you can now reserve the collaborative group study rooms (CoLabs) in Snell Library by visiting https://nuevents.neu.edu/ and signing in with your myNEU credentials. CoLabs can be reserved for up to three hours at a time and reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance.  Students can now reserve the Digital Media Commons workstations located on the second floor of Snell Library in the DMC. Both DMC Macs and PCs can be reserved for up to 90 minutes and students may have three reservations at a time. Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance. More details can be found on the library’s blog Snell Snippets.
