Printing

Staff computers in schools and support departments are connected to printers via the network.  Although it is not possible for every member of staff to have a printer, there is a shared printer available within your office or local work area.  If your PC is not linked to a printer, please contact the ISA Helpdesk.

Printing for staff is free of charge. However, to save paper and ink it is university policy to print documents printed double sided and in black and white where possible.

New! FollowMe Staff Printing System
This system was introduced in summer 2012 with a view to rationalising staff printing across the campus.
If your department has FollowMe Staff Devices then please see What is FollowMe Staff? for more information.
