Release and collect your work

When you send your work to a printer it is held in a queue for 30 minutes. This means it will only print when you walk over to the printer.

Multi-function photocopier style machines have a touchscreen attached. Hold your staff or student ID card against the reader to show documents you've sent to print. You may have to pair your card using your username (without at the end) and password the first time you do this.

Press the printer icon on the left to release jobs (you can choose which jobs to print using the checkboxes) then press print.

Your work stays in the queue for 30 minutes before it disappears and you have to re-send it to the printer.

You are not charged if you do not release the job to print.

Some IT suites have a separate PC next to their printers. Type your username into the window to see your print queue.
