Printers

Computers in labs are already configured to print to the university print queues. Simply choose one of the following queues from the print dialog in your application depending on whether you need to print in colour or black & white (mono):

  • Student-Mono
  • Student-Colour

You can then collect your printout from any of the ‘Follow Me’ printers on campus.

Printer credits can be purchased from the ePayments system

More information on printing, including print prices, can be found on the Print Services website

A4 Flatbed Scanners

Free to use A4 scanners are now installed in: Haslegrave Labs (N004, N005), Haslegrave Foyer (Haslegrave Short Stay), Loughborough Design School LDS003, Stewart Mason Building SMB (Postgraduate Centre).

You can also use the campus printers for scan to email for free, but there is a charge for scanning to print.

Apart from N004 / N005, these computers have only the software required for scanning and do not have all of the same software as the rest of the lab, therefore the scanner computer may not be suitable for use during lectures.

Please note our Acceptable Use Policy and work within Copyright Legislation.
