Staff printing
Members of staff don't have the Printing Account option in Sussex Direct because they are generally expected to use staff printing which is charged using a different system. However, if you are a member of staff and you want to credit your account in order to use student printers on the campus, you can add credit:

  • using the print account stations in the Library and Shawcross to add cash,
  • with a credit or debit card on the SussexMobile phone app
