CCI Printing
UNC Onyen is required Help
CCI Printing allows students, faculty and staff to print to ITS printers from anywhere on campus using their personal computers and a network connection. This program was designed by ITS Teaching and Learning to provide ubiquitous computing capabilities and location-specific services to the UNC Chapel Hill community.

The CCI Color printer installers allow for printing to the two color print stations (Undergraduate Library and Health Sciences Library). Jobs sent via this printer are only sent to those two printers and will cost .30/page to print whether the job is in color or in b/w. This installer does not include the regular CCI print queue, so to be able to print to both the color and regular printers, both would need to be installed.
