Print, scan or copy

Printing, photocopying and scanning facilities are available in the Library and in centrally-managed PC suites across campus.

Top up your print card

  • If you have already set up an online print account, you can add money to your print card online or at the kiosk in the Library.

  • If you have not already set up an online print account or if you have forgotten your print account password, unfortuantely you can't set up a new print account or reset your password online at this time. We are currently investigating this issue and will restore this service as soon as we can. In the meantime, please visit the Library to add money to your print card.

How to print, scan and copy

You can use our multi-function devices (MFDs) to:

  • print
  • copy, and
  • scan

You can use the MFDs to print and copy in:

  • mono (greyscale), or 
  • colour

The MFDs can print and copy on:

  • A4 (210 x 297mm), or
  • A3 (297 x 420mm) paper.

Visit Print Services or the plotter in Stenhouse Wing room 6.01b if you need to print on paper bigger than A3.

  1. Download and install the appropriate print driver for your device
  2. Email the document(s) you want to print to our webprint service

Using the MFDs

  • You need a University print card to use the MFDs. A print card is different from your student card.
  • Printing and copying prices start from 5p per sheet.
  • Scanning is free of charge.


Your University print card

You use a plastic, pre-pay print card to pay for printing and photocopying on-campus.

A print card is different from your student card. Collect your print card from the enquiry point on Level 3 of the Library.

When you register your print card we will give you £1 of credit for free.


Adding credit to your print card

You can add credit to your card:

Please don't buy more credit than you need. We can't refund unused credit at the end of your studies, and you can't transfer your credit to another student.
