Student Print

For easy printing from your personal device, use the secure online Web Print portal to upload documents and manage your printing credit. You can also use Student Print directly from your device, or print directly from a Library computer.

Once you have submitted your job, simply find your nearest printer or Multi-Function Device (MFD), tap your Student ID card, and release your job(s). If you don't have your Student ID card, simply login at the printer touchscreen with your credentials.

In addition to printing, MFDs (located in major libraries and selected locations) allow you to scan and photocopy documents.
