Information about printing at UCA

Using a Print and Copy Station

When you enrol at UCA you are provided with a network account, this is connected to a system of Print and Copy stations.

When you print, the network will deduct 'print credit' from your account. Before using any of the Print & Copy Stations, you will need to purchase sufficient print credit. This will be added to your network account.

Locations

Printers are located in the library of each campus, and around each site at specific points to allow access for all buildings to printing resources.

Available Printing Formats

The Print and Copy Stations provide A4 and A3, Colour and Black and White printing. Coloured A4 paper in cream, yellow, blue, pink and green for students with disabilities is available from the Library on each Campus. Please ask and your LLC ICT Advisor for more information.
