You'll find printers and photocopiers in each of our libraries.
You can print from the computers in our computer rooms or from your own laptop or mobile device (see below).
The amount you are charged depends on the type of document you print or photocopy.
The print service offers smart printing so documents with colour and black/white pages will be charged at the relevant price automatically.
Before you send jobs to print you can also choose printing options that will save paper and your printing costs.
|Prints and photocopies
|Black and white single-sided||5p||10p|
|Black and white double-sided||8p||16p|
We have a cashless payment system (previously called UNIpurse, which is stored on your Student ID Card). Each time you swipe your University ID card to collect your prints or photocopies, payment is deducted from the account on your card.
Every student begins the academic year with some credit on their ID card.
You can also add funds to your account by:

You can print from your laptop, PC, Mac, tablet or mobile without the need to install any drivers or software and you do not have to be connected to the University network. You can send jobs to print from home or over a mobile connection, and collect your print jobs (within 24 hours) when you are next on campus.
You can print documents in the following formats: Microsoft Office (Excel, Powerpoint, Word), OpenOffice, PDF, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, TXT.
You can print non-secure web content, ie not behind a signed-in page. You cannot print from Google docs. Note that the formatting of web content may mean that some pages may not print.
