How do I print at ETL?

Printing is available for COE students, faculty, and staff. Use your netid as username and UIN as a password. If you need additional pages, please talk to front desk.

For all other users not affiliated with the College of Education, there is another computer lab in the basement, room L278. Another closest location is C-Stop at the BSB building.


You may already be familiar with 2FA, as it is currently required to access the UIC VPN system and UI-System applications such as My UI Info and Banner Administrative Pages. The vast majority of students, faculty and staff have already signed up for 2FA, and we are encouraging remaining members to confirm their existing account or sign up for the service in preparation for 2FA being added to additional University services.

Duo Security is an industry leader in cybersecurity services, helping secure your account and the University’s sensitive data by adding an extra layer of security to logins. When logging in to university systems using your NetID and password, 2FA requires you to verify your identity using a second factor such as a mobile device, and prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if your password has been compromised. For the best possible user experience, you are encouraged to use the Duo App on iOS or Android.
