Ink Printing at Park University

OVERVIEW

 

INK AT PARK 

Park University is announcing a new, more accessible way for you to print documents on the Parkville Campus — Ink.

Ink allows students 24-hour, on-demand access to print documents from any device you choose, including Park University kiosk laptops, computers in the Computer Lab, your personal computer, or even your phone or tablet. And it’s as easy as swiping your Park ID card or visiting park.inkcloud.me to get started (students who don’t have an ID card can login through MyPark at the kiosk to access your funds).
