Computers, Printing, Scanning & Copying


Pardee Library has 10 thin client workstations (similar to Mugar Library) that require a current BU login name and Kerberos password to log in. The machines offer a variety of applications and are connected to the campus MyPrint network. There is also one guest computer (PC) available.

Wireless Access for Visitors

Campus visitors with wireless devices may use the BU Guest wireless network to access the Internet. Guests will not have access to university-specific resources, such as library databases. Accounts are valid for 30 days and may be renewed. The Guest network is unencrypted.


Pardee Library’s thin client terminals are connected to the IS&T managed MyPrint system, enabling students to use print quotas or Convenience Points to print in the library. There are currently three printers in Pardee Library. On the 3rd floor, there is one black & white printer and one color printer (also prints in black & white). On the 2nd floor, there is one black & white printer. MyPrint printers also have the capability to scan and photocopy.

Other printing options at Questrom School of Business:
Questrom affiliates may use their Questrom print quota in the Questrom Computer Labs located in the Hariri Building.

Quota printing elsewhere on campus:
To print elsewhere on campus, a list of General Access Computer Labs is available.
