Guest - Print Drivers

To print your files to a MFP device, you will need the Pharos print driver. The Challenge version of the print driver will require you to authenticate with a username and password every time you send a file to print. For further instructions on how to get a USF temporary username and password please see our checklist. After successful installation, please restart your computer.

All software installed on personal equipment is to be installed at your own risk. Due to the wide variety of computer settings and configurations, The University cannot guarantee that remote printing will work on all computers.

To print from a USF computer, a guest must use the Challenge version of the printer driver. ITS has installed this driver on computers in public areas such as computer labs and libraries. For questions regarding drivers, please contact ITS Help at or 415-422-6668.

When sending a print job, guests will be prompted to type in the copy card number (9-digit number located at the front of the card) each time in order to assign their print job to the copy card. If you encounter any problems please refer to our trouble shooting checklist.
