Welcome to Your Library: Computers & Printing

Library Navigation

Need a computer?

The Library has over 100 computers, including:

  • 5 Macs
  • a graphics station
  • 2 accessibility stations

Or use a laptop. The library has laptops that you can borrow.  Ask the Media Desk for details.  You can also use your own laptop with wireless access

We hate to see you go, but if all of the Library computers are occupied, there are other computer labs on campus.

Save yourself a trip and check for available computers.

Looking for specific software?  Not a problem.  Here is a list of software on computers across campus.

Need to print?

The Library has black & white ($.15 per sheet) and colour printers ($.50 per sheet).  There are 2 ways to print:

I have money on my account:

Using a computer that requires a login, the defualt is to print from your account. So you're good to go.

Sounds good but what is a print account?

Add cash, sorry no debit or credit, to your account and the next time you print, the amount will be automatically deducted.  A Pcounter station is at the front of the library.  Just sign in to mymru, add the money to the box, and transfer it to your acccount.  Click here for more information and locations of other Pcounters.


I just want to pay cash:

Not a problem.  There are 12 Cash Only printing stations close to the Info Desk. Look for the stand-up computers. First time printing using cash?  People at the Info Desk can give you a hand.

But I want to use a login computer with their über comfy chairs...

Sure, select the cash printer from the printer drop-down menu.  Ask us how.


Save a tree and print double-sided.

In the Library (and the computer labs, too) the default is to print double-sided.  If you need single-sided copies, select Properties in the print box and remove the checkmark.  Staff at the Info Desk can show you how.

Need to print from your laptop?

You're in luck. MRU has wireless printing. The same options apply to wireless printing as are available when using a computer in the library, black & white or colour, cash or account.  For more information, check out this how-to guide or visit the Info Desk.

Need Computer Help?

Trying to print PowerPoint slides 3 at a time? 

Need to add a header in APA format?

Has your printing not arrived? 

We're here to help.  Stop by the Info Desk with your basic computer question. 

Is you question a little more complicated?

We often have student experts in the library to lend a hand.  The START student can be found on the side of the Info Desk facing the computers.  They also have another home in the START lab, T106.  For more information on the START program and the lab hours, visit their website.

START students have also compiled some very helpful Technical Guides:
