Purchasing Print Credits

Print credits are purchased from the ePayments system, SafeCom, using a debit or credit card and are allocated to your user account.

If you are off campus you will need to use the VPN service before you can use the ePayments systems.

If you require wide format A0 poster printers (A0 plotters) these are covered by your printer credits, but are to be collected from Creative & Print Services in the Manzoni Building. 

If you require over the counter ‘while you wait’ printing services from Creative & Print, please refer to their website Creative & Print Services.


  • Minimum Cash-Only payment for print credits of £1.00
  • Minimum amount of £5.00 for debit/credit card 

Please note that if using a Mac the print credit Safecom URL doesn't work in Safari, therefore, it is recommended to use Google Chrome.

Refund of print credits is managed by Creative and Print Services.

In the light of the current COVID-19 Crisis, finalist students will be refunded print credits, £5 and over, automatically after the exam period has drawn to a close.

Print credit accounts will be closed after the refund has been processed.

All payments are made by electronic transfer to a UK bank account nominated by you. It is therefore imperative that you enter your personal UK bank details onto the system via student self-service on Learn. This can be accessed with your student login and under ‘Student Resources’ is the option ‘Maintain Student Bank Details.

Bank account details on Learn must be updated before 30th June 2020.
