macOS (managed) - Manually Mapping a Network Printer

Steps for manually mapping a network printer to a Mac.

The instructions below can be used to manually map networked printers to both university and personally owned Macs. Printer specific instructions can be offered to those who may wish to map a printer to a personally owned laptop as a courtesy to our users.

To begin, download and install any necessary printer drivers from the manufacturer.  Once the print drivers have been successfully downloaded and installed, follow the set of instructions below based on the print server the printer queue is located on.
