Printing & Photocopying

Students should login to their own account using their student number and print. To ensure that other students do not use your login, the student will need to reset their initial passwords immediately. The IT Office is not liable for any unwanted prints from a student’s login.

Students can print up to 1,000 pages per academic year. The pages are credited against an active student account and is loaded every start of their term.  This is applicable on *monochrome printers located on:

Block 16Lab 103
Lab 107 (for PCE Lab Students Only)
Lab 109
Lab 110
Lab 111

**Colour printing is available on these locations:

Block 15Library Individual Study (LIS)

**One (1) black or coloured print from these colour printer/copier is equivalent to twelve (12) prints from monochrome printers.

If a student has exceeded their printing limits, extra pages are available at reasonable rates. A copy of the printing policy is displayed in each printing area. Students can select the number of pages required, pay at the Finance Office and present their receipt to the IT Office in order to increase page limit. Students can verify their remaining print balance via the IT Office.

Multi-Function Device (Copy, Print, Scan)

Multi-Functional Devices (MFD) are available in Block 15.

This can print, copy, scan and send documents via email. Upon first use, the student will need to register their ID card to the machine. Once this is completed, the student will be able to release the prints or cancel them. The device can be accessed by simply placing the student ID card on the reader. Scanning and sending a scanned file is free, provided that the student logs in to the device with their correct credentials.

The cost of printing on these MFDs are different from a Color printer. Printing and photocopying depends on which options you are selecting under Properties or under Machine options. This is deductible on a student print limit.

We encourage students to print responsibly. Print and copy is free for academic purposes within reasonable limits. Colour printing should only be used when it is essential. Duplex (double-sided) printing is available to minimise environmental impact, reduce costs and keep printing services free for students.
