Printing & Photocopying: What is the cost for printing and how can I purchase print credits?

What is the cost for printing?

Paper is provided within each MFD, however printing is charged to cover the costs of ink.

You will need to purchase print credits for printing and photocopying:

Paper size and cost per side:

  • A4 – Black and White – 5p
  • A4 – Colour – 16p
  • A3 – Black and White – 12p
  • A3 – Colour – 32p

When you first join the University as a new student you will receive £3.00 of free credit for printing.

What is the cost for photocopying?

The cost of photocopying is exactly the same as listed above. Visit the Copyshop for any complicated printing or photocopying (colour paper, binding or lamination)

What is the cost for scanning?

It’s free! You can scan documents in PDF format or jpeg image format to your N drive, or you can email the scanned documents to your university email address.

Where do I purchase print credits?

You can purchase print credits online or during office hours from the Library Issue Counter – the credits are swiped onto your Library card. If you forget your Library card, make sure you provide your student number. Payment is accepted in cash or card (card transactions must be over £2.00).

To purchase credits online follow the link below and enter your student number and date of birth. You will be sent a confirmation email once your payment has gone through.
