Account balance for Staff and Postgraduate Researchers

The print balance for staff Staff is for information and awareness purposes only as the University is aiming to ‘print smarter’ and reduce our carbon footprint.

Staff won’t be personally charged for your printing, copying and scanning but your print account will be debited every time you use the smart printer. The total balance will be shown on screen whilst you are logged into a smart printer.

This information is to make staff aware of the overall cost of your printing. This is not how much we pay the supplier but includes all costs to the University to produce your printing.

Printing will be monitored across the University so that information can be used to help decide where Smart Printers should be placed and which type would be most suitable.

Set your default printer

Staff should have Black2sided on staff-printer as their default printer.  If your default is different you can change it.
