Tell her to get a router for her dorm and make her own private WiFi with a password.

Otherwise, I believe most printers support Ad-Hoc WiFi which is a direct P2P connection between the printer and her laptop which should also work.
Haha yeah, I was planning on putting a password in place to access the printer. Still probably a dumb idea.

I have been reading up on Ad-Hoc networking. My understanding is that you cannot be simultaneously connected to both a an Ad-Hoc network to print, and a standard wifi network for internet access. Is this correct?

Thanks again guys,
