Print, Copy and Scan

For students and staff these services are available across all University Learning Resource Centres as well as specific computer rooms. UWTSD use Multi-Functional Devices (MFDs) which all have print, copy and scan functions available in full colour or black and white.

Information Technoligy & Systems publish a range of online and print information guides for students including guidance on using the print, copy and scan service.

Using the service

To use the service you will need your Student ID Card or your University username and password and credit in your print/copy/scan account.

An item can be sent to print from any PC on the network and is stored securely in your personal queue for up to 3 days. You can then release it for printing from any MFD once you have logged in.

To print, select the printer called: Print_Argraffu

The MFD default settings are to print duplex (double sided) and black and white. To print in colour or single sided you will need to change the default settings.

The MFD will charge accordingly for a mixture of colour pages and black and white items. Please note that URLs in a document will print in colour if sent to the colour MFD.

Balances will be shown on the Uniflow client which runs when a student is logged onto the network PCs or you can see your print credit when you log into any MFD.

The MFD default settings are to copy duplex (double sided) and to copy as black and white.

These settings can be changed on the MFD.

Items can be scanned within copyright restrictions. Scanned items are sent to your UWTSD email address by default however you can specify a different email address of your choice on the MFD.
