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 continue to play an important part towards enhancing student achievement and experience.
There are 28 printers in the Sheppard Library and they can be found on each floor except for the Law wing.
Student printers are also located in various buildings on and off the main Hendon Campus.
You will need to register your ID card to any printer. It’s a simple one-off procedure and once completed, you will be able to ‘touch’ in to any student printer across campus to print, copy or scan.
Printers allow you to print directly from your USB drive/memory stick. A popular and time saving option with students and new for 2018… printers allow you to print Microsoft files (Word, PowerPoint etc.) as well as PDF, JPG and tiff files
