There are two main printing systems in use at the university.
- MyPrint system (MyPrint)
- Network printing (e.g. DSPrint)
A rough rule of thumb is that if your local printer is a Konica Minolta then it is on the MyPrint system. Some departments may have alternative printing arrangements in place so ask your colleagues, line manager or Departmental IT Rep for advice.
The University uses a system called MyPrint which allows you to send a document to print and then collect it on any MyPrint printer across campus. All staff have an unlimited printing balance on this system.
When printing via MyPrint, simply print your document as normal and choose \\MyPrint\Staff_COL. The default settings are A4, double sided and in black and white to save paper and money. Select Printer Properties if you want to change these options, such as to A3 or single-sided. Many of the devices also offer copying and scanning facilities. The MyPrint system allows you to manage the print jobs you have sent before collecting them from a printer, allowing you to be sure that you print exactly what you need to the right printer. When you are ready to collect, visit any one of the MyPrint printers, enter your details to collect.
You can manage your MyPrint jobs by using the Inepro Client on your computer. If it's not available, contact the IT Service Desk and ask for it to be installed.
Network (e.g. DSPrint)
Some departments or offices have printers set up as networked printers. These are usually known by a number (e.g. ISS-CP6) and there is no charging in place on these. Check you know the name of your local printer and where it is. If you send a print job to the wrong printer then someone else could collect your printouts.
When you wish to print, select the name from the print menu and change any settings (A4, double sided etc) accordingly. Check your settings and proceed to print carefully. Your print job will be sent straight away and you may not have time to cancel before it prints out.
