IITS manages and maintains networked printers on campus through our print server, PAINE (after the famous Quaker, Thomas Paine).

For instructions on how to install these printers please click one of the links below.

Support for the printers should be directed to the ProDesk at or (610) 896-1480.

All of our networked printers (except the few remaining Xerox Copiers) are covered through a hardware and supply contract with Innovative Printing Systems (IPS). Any supplies needed for printers should be ordered directly through IPS at #1-800-347-2913.

HP copiers are managed separately through our Pharos server and require special configuration and clearance.

Networked Printing from Windows Systems

Networked printers should only be utilized by Windows systems that are connected to Haverford’s QUAKER Domain. All college-owned laptops and desktops should be connected to QUAKER, if you find this is not the case with your machine please contact the ProDesk at or (610) 896-1480.

The printers are categorized by the building name and location where they reside on our print server, PAINE (after the famous Quaker, Thomas Paine). Please utilize only those printers to which you have permission to print.

To connect to a networked printer go to the start menu:

  1. Go to your Start Menu and click in the Search field (or click Run… for Vista).
  2. Type \\
  3. Press the “Enter” key.
  4. Find the printer you wish to add and double click on it.
  5. Once the printer installs, that printer’s queue window will open.
  6. To make it your default printer, right click on Printer and choose Set as Default Printer.
