To Print

Web Print

Note: If you are working from home, you need to connect the VPN to access papercut.


You can print directly from google drive without converting to a PDF using Mobility Print Chrome App or you can install the Mobility Print Android App.


IF off campus or not connected to the Lehigh network, a VPN is required to access LU Apps and Lehigh Network drives such as H and I.  A VPN is a network system that makes a secure connection between a client computer (or device) at a remote location (such as a personal machine at home or off-campus) and a protected, private network (such as Lehigh's campus network) over an otherwise insecure public network (such as the Internet).

(Please note - you must have a Chromebook that supports installing android apps to use VPN connection) 

To use your Chromebook with the LU apps, please install the Cisco Anyconnect app from the Google Play Store. Then configure your Android app to use Lehigh's VPN.

Connecting to LU Apps

If you need to use applications that are non-native to chrome OS, you should try LU apps.  LU apps - our virtual software system--, also known as 'application virtualization' technologies, allow users to run numerous programs that aren’t installed on their devices by installing a single piece of client software (Citrix Receiver / Workspace), and using it to connect to a central server on which the programs actually run. This enables Android, iOS or Mac users to easily access software that is only written for Windows, for example. Lehigh now uses Citrix for this, and has a customized implementation called 'LUapps'. See our on demand software page for a complete list of software available from LU Apps.
