The Sheppard Library is the hub of print activity across Campus and to support demand a blend of printers are installed. These are designed to meet a variety of challenges such as faster printing, higher image quality and delivering across a wide range of media. Flexible ways to print such as directly from USB and mobile devices (See How to… guides) continue to play an important part towards enhancing student achievement and experience.
There are 24 printers in the Sheppard Library and they can be found on each floor (excluding the Law wing).
Student printers are also located across Campus and easily recognisable by two large red stickers on the front of the machine.
You will need to register your ID card to any printer. It’s a simple one-off procedure and a 'How to…' notice is displayed in each print pod and side rooms in the Sheppard Library and Library@Williams. Once this is done, you will be able to ‘touch’ in to any student printer across campus to print,copy or scan.
Jobs are sent to print via 'Internet Gateway' (IG) and the laptops feature an icon on the desktop.
Printers allow you to print directly from your USB drive/memory stick. A popular and time saving option with students however an important point to note - only the following types of document can be printed: pdf, jpeg or tiff. Please visit our FAQ pages for guidance on 'How to save your document as a pdf'.
Jobs can be sent to print from your University e-mail- firstname.lastname@example.org and from a web browser (known as Internet Gateway) – https://uniprint.mdx.ac.uk. For further information please see the How to… guides attached to all student printers and the How to… section on this webpage.
You can also print directly from your personal laptop or MacBook by installing the printer. Please click here for the installation guides. Should you require further support, please see a member of the IT Specialists team based in StudyHub on the first floor of the Sheppard Library (11am-6.30pm Monday to Friday only).
Documents can be scanned and sent to your University e-mail only. The scan and store option allows you to scan your documents or images directly to your USB drive/memory stick.

All printing and copying is recorded against a student account and mechanisms are in place to take action in cases of excessive printing, copying or other unauthorised use. Please continue to support the joint university/MDXSU green agenda.
