Print and Copy

Free for academic use within reasonable limits

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 some mobile devices continue to play an important part towards enhancing student achievement and experience.

Please print responsibly – #ThinkBeforeYouPrint

Student print and copy is free for academic purposes within reasonable limits but it's important that we all print and copy responsibly and abide by the Printing and Photocopying Policy and Guidance for Students.

We need to work together as a team to reduce the University’s use of paper and the impact of our printing on the environment.

You are also now able to access PaperCut Client – a personalised environmental dashboard allowing you to quickly and easily assess the impact of your printing usage on the environment, global warming and waste management.

A user guide has been produced to help you make the most out of this new software.

Please note: 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.

The first time you use a printer

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.

Printing directly from a USB

All of our printers can let you print directly from your USB drive/memory stick, a popular and time saving option with students that allows you to print Microsoft files (Word, PowerPoint etc.) as well as PDF, JPG and tiff files.

Scan options

Documents can be scanned and sent to your OneDrive or University e-mail only - we recommend you always select the OneDrive option especially if you’re scanning large files or documents which exceed 50 pages. There is also a scan and store option which allows you to scan documents or images directly to your USB drive/memory stick.

Binding Options

Spiral binding, laminating and more options are available from CDS Print Services however these are not free services and costs will vary dependent on individual requirements. To avoid disappointment, please be prepared to allow 24 hours for your finished item.

For full information on all that CDS can offer, please visit them in the basement of the Sheppard Library. Hatch opening times are 9.30am to 2:30pm. Alternatively you can contact them at mdx@CDS.co.uk or call 020 8411 5781
