You can print to any IT Suite printer from any of the Macs or PC's in the suites in colour or black and white. However, you’ll need to buy print credits first! You can buy print credits online using the payment portal or by using one of the print top up machines around campus.

With our ‘FIND ME’ printing facility, you can print now and collect later from any of the Konica photocopier / printers in the suites. When you are ready to print, just select the FIND ME printer from the printer list and then when you are ready to collect your print outs swipe your ID card on a Konica printer.
