Possibly.

If you install your printer drivers on your office PC, you should be able to check the box to bring your local printer into the remote session.

Are you connecting via VPN? If so it's likely the host server is preventing you connecting remote devices to your network. Talk to your sysadmin to see if they can enable "split-tunneling" on your connection which will let you see your local devices while still connected to the VPN. As a security measure, by default, VPN clients disable this functionality.
