Administrative Printing — Badger
Also known as Badger, new C-Print.
Badger is Columbia University Information Technology’s administrative printing system. Badger allows Columbia employees to send documents for printing from any computer or from your @columbia.edu email address. The documents can then be printed and picked up at any Badger printer location by tapping your CUID badge.
- The most convenient way to print is using the Badger print driver on your CUIT-managed computer.
- Jobs can be released on any Badger printer.
- Simply swipe your CUID at any Badger printer within 12 hours of sending your job.
- You can delete unwanted jobs by logging into http://badger.cuit.columbia.edu.
