PolarPrint Software Drivers

Public PolarPrint printers require that a software package be installed before they can be used. These packages can be installed from anywhere but will only install correctly if you are on campus and either plugged in to the network via Ethernet cable or on wireless connected the BOWDOIN wireless network.

Connecting to BOWDOIN-GUEST or BOWDOIN-LEGACY will not work as they don't have access to the additional software packages required to complete the installation correctly.


Locate the printer you want to install from the list below and right-click the link next to. Choose "Save" or "Save as" to download the printer software.

Locate the printer software on your computer and run it (usually downloaded to your Downloads folder)

For Windows users, the software installer will go out to the network and download additional software as needed depending on which version of Windows you are running. OS X users will not need to download any additional software.

Once the software is installed, restart your computer. You will then be able to print to the printer you selected.
