Assisted copying and printing

Only need to print out a handful of pages?

Of course, we are happy to assist you with this - but please be aware that there is a minimum charge of £3.00 for assisted copying and printing, because we need to cover the cost of the staff time involved.

If you only need to make one or two copies or print off a couple of pages, we recommend you make use of self-service copiers on the ground floor of the Library, and you can print directly to multifunctional printers in IT Services cluster rooms.

There are no self-service photocopying facilities in the Print Unit.

How to pay for printing

We can currently accept payment by credit or debit card only

Please note that printing work which is not being paid for by the University (i.e. by purchase order) must be paid for on placement of order, unless by prior agreement, and that there is a minimum charge of £3.00 per transaction.

We cannot charge print work to your student account or to your ITS printing account.
