Student printing

News: During Summer 2024, we are replacing the printers across campus. In preparation for this, we are asking students to test the new devices in the Main Library and Alan Gilbert Learning Commons from Thursday 2 May to Wednesday 15 May. During this time, printing on the new system for students will be free. Note that this is a temporary arrangement and only applies on the new system. Find out more:

Printing your documents couldn't be easier, you can print from your own device or from one of our PC clusters.

Printing, scanning and copying


When you log in to a cluster PC, your printing will be handled by the pull printing system.

To use the pull print system you need to PRINT > TAP > PULL:

  1. Click PRINT in the application you want to print from
  2. TAP your student card on any Multi-function device (Combined printer, scanner and copier) with a card reader
  3. Press the PULL print button, then select your job from the list

Reporting faults

If you need to report a fault with the printer please contact the IT Support Centre on 0161 306 5544 (or extension 65544). When you report a fault please have the printer serial number, Xerox asset number and the UoM device name at hand (all of these are available on a sticker on the printer).
