Printing and photocopying

Monocolour (black and white) A4 printing is available in all the computer rooms. The Chad's and I basement computer rooms also offer colour A4 printing. The Library photocopier provides A3 and A4 printing as well as photocopying and scanning. Please see the notices in the Library for how to use it.

Charges

Printing to the College printers costs are 6p per A4 sheet (single or double sided) on the monocolour printers and 18p per A4 side on the colour printers. It is possible to reduce costs further by printing several pages on one side. This is set using the print properties when you ask an application to print.

The Library photocopier is cheaper for printing:

  • A4 Monocolour Charge: 5p per sheet
  • A4 Colour Charge: 15p per sheet
  • A3 Monocolour Charge:10p per sheet
  • A3 Colour Charge: 30p per sheet

Each term you will be credited with a free College allowance of £4.50, equivalent to 75 sheets on the monocolour printers or 25 sides on the  colour printers. As you print pages, this balance is reduced. You need to be in credit to print. To buy more credit, log in to a MCS Windows PC and go to Start | Account Management | eCredit. In the case of problems with this method, or emergencies (e.g. a very urgent deadline) please contact the IT Office.

You can check your print balances in Start | All Programs | Utilities | Balance. Your College print balance is the "current location" balance.

Manual feed paper

If you would like to use your own paper, .e.g. envelopes or non-A4 sized paper, it can be fed in through the manual trays. Please note that not all types of paper are suitable and some may damage the printers. If in doubt please consult the IT Office.
