WiFi printer with mobile WiFi

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 5032 All-in-One Wireless Inkjet Printer

I have bought my daughter this printer who is at university I have one at home easy to set up and print. 


The problem is I can’t connect it to the WiFi in her uni halls. I have suggested she contacts IT support to see if this can be done securely. 


I did think about getting a pay as you go wifi mobile data device. Would this work if I contacted her Laptop, IPad, IPhone and printer to the same device when printing is required? 


Any suggestion please. Thanks.

A warm welcome to HP Support Community!

University WiFi will have several IT restrictions and WiFi hotspots wont offer a stable connection. I would recommend using WiFi direct. WiFi direct will allow us to easily connect printer to other devices without requiring a wireless access point. You may use the steps available in this document to setup WiFi direct printing.
