Adding the uniPRINT Printer

If you want to use uniPRINT on an unmanaged computer you will need to install the print queue first.  Below you will find instructions on how to do this for each operating system, Windows, Apple Mac OS X and Ubuntu / Linux.

Note: If you're using a Chromebook, tablet, or mobile phone, you won't be able to add the uniPRINT printers - you can use the mobile print service to send your work to print instead.

  1. Press the Windows Logo key and R to bring up the Run window - or click on the Start menu and select Run
  2. Enter the following and then click the OK button

    \\uniprint\print
    or
    \\uniprint\printAdv
    (this is for advanced printing features such as booklet folding)

  3. The printer will now install automatically

You may also wish to open 'Devices and Printers' from the control panel, right-click the new print queue and select 'Set as default', to make this your main printer.

You should now be able to print to uniPRINT. If you have any problems please contact the IT Helpdesk.

AirPrint

You can now use uniPRINT from your Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad) and the latest version of the Mac operating system (OS X)

From an iOS device select 'Print' from any application and then select printer. This will search and find a printer called 'uniprint'.

You will be asked to login with your Aston University username and password, however this will be remembered on the device for future use.
