    • Print Credit
      +-

      You are given £10 free Print Credit per year.

      Additional credit can be purchased from the print credit machines on your campus - the machines are :

      • Hamilton - on the wall outside the lab in the Library
      • Dumfries - on the ground floor in the Rutherford McCowan building within the student breakout area.
      •  Paisley - in the Open Access Area, Level 3, in the Library
      • Ayr - in the Library beside the reception desk

      If the print credit machine is out of order, you can Purchase Print Credit Online (see below).  Students at Dumfries campus should go to the Library to have money credited to their account.

      Credit can be bought in multiples of £5. You must take along your student card.

      You can check at any time how much credit you have by hovering the mouse over the £ sign in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (near the clock).

    • Printing Charges
      +-

      Cost for Black and White - 5p per sheet

      Cost for colour - 40p per sheet

      When you print a document, a pop-up screen will tell you how much credit you have and ask if you wish to continue. If you click on Cancel, the document will not be printed and you will not be charged. Only by clicking on Print will you be charged.

      Refunds for Print Credit are only given if there has been a problem with the printer.

    • Multi Function Devices
      +-

      Multi Function Devices are installed at all four campuses - these will provide you with the ability to Print, Copy and Scan to Email.

      Swipe your student card to log in to a device. Once logged in, you can release any print jobs, copy or scan.

      You can print to any device of the same model type in the campus, so if the nearest device is unavailable or busy you can use one on a different floor or room.
