Print credit

Your print credit, that is your initial balance of printing, is set by your Academic partner/college. This will be communicated to you at your student induction.

Your print balance can be seen by clicking on £ icon in your system tray:

Print charges

The cost to print is set by your academic partner, regardless of where you print your documents. So the cost to use the service is the same as the charges set by your academic partner. Your Balance will be deducted regardless of where you print, but the charge will only apply if you collect the print.

Topping up your print credit

Please refer to your student induction as to how you top up your print credit. Your print credit top up must be made with your academic partner and cannot be done when visiting other sites. An online payment system is under development and will be launched in the near future.

You can now print at the single print service partners (providing you are registered to one of them) using either the mobile print service by logging into or by sending an email to and attaching the document you wish to print.

You can only use this service to print between sites who are participating.

The service defaults to single side, black and white copies to ensure you get the cheapest printing option every time.

You can also use this service to send prints from your home, mobile phone, laptop and tablet devices. They will stay in the system for 3 days, so if you don’t collect them, don’t worry, you won’t get charged for them.

Collect your secure prints as normal, using either your ID Card if issued or by putting in your log on details into the printer.
