Creative and Print Services

We provide students with professional design, print, photography, video and web design services. The in-house print unit is equipped with the latest print technology and offers services including post and parcels services, high volume copying, full colour printing and large poster printing, finishing, binding and laminating, office supplies as well as ID card services.

Printing on campus

At Loughborough we offer both self-service printing and over the counter 'while you wait' printing and binding.

We have nearly 300 self-service printers on campus, the majority of which are accessible during normal working hours. Almost all the printers are equipped with black and white and colour printing, photocopying and scanning capabilities.

To make sure your printing doesn’t get lost we use ID card touch pads on each printer so that you can send your files in advance and then print when and where is convenient to you. These printers can be installed on your personal device.

You can top up your print credit online via ePayment, in person at Pilkington Library or at Creative and Print Services in the Herbert Manzoni building.

Our over the counter printing services are available to students, staff and the public, located in the lower level of Herbert Manzoni building. The front of house team are happy to assist with printing and binding while you wait.

If you opt to use our over the counter service, please be aware that it can get very busy around deadline times, this means that there may be queues so make sure sure you leave a good amount of time to get your work printed or copied.

Mailroom services

We have a mailroom on site which offers limited posting services from the Creative and Print Services reception counter. Stamps can be purchased over the counter and a mail and parcel delivery service up to 30kg is provided via Royal Mail, DHL or Parcelforce. We also provide a collection service.

You can find more details about where you can collect your post from if you are living in one of our halls of residence on our post and parcels webpage.

ID card services

If your ID card is lost, stolen, damaged or expires while you are with us you can get a replacement.

Just bring your old card (or your ID number if you no longer have the card) to the Creative & Print Services reception and where possible we’ll print a replacement within a matter of minutes.

Lost cards and damaged cards under two years old are charged at £8 for a replacement. Stolen cards will be replaced free of charge if you provide us with a police crime reference number.

Our team will not issue your with your first ID Card, further information about where you can collect this from is available here.
