Open up a command shell and type in the following:

net use \\KORE.CS.VIRGINIA.EDU * /USER:CSDOM\[mst3k]

Where [mst3k] is replaced by your username. Enter your password at the prompt and await successful login to KORE.

Once you are authenticated against KORE, open the 'Devices and Printers' interface. Select 'Add a printer' then click on 'Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer', then on 'The printer I want is not listed'.
