Sending documents to MFDs

All printing on campus is via networked multi function devices (MFDs).

You can send items from any classroom PC, your personal laptop, tablet or mobile phone over the wireless network and collect your documents from any networked MFD on campus.

Your items are sent to a holding queue until you are ready to print them.

You can see what is in your print queue or delete items that you no longer want to print using the PrintManage system.

To send a job to the printer (MFD):

  1. open the document you wish to print and click on the FILE tab on the far left of the ribbon (at the top of your screen)
  2. choose Print to bring up the print menu.

From the drop-down arrow, make sure to choose MFD-PULL-BW if you are printing in black and white, and MFD-PULL-COLOUR if you are printing in colour.

 At this stage, you also need to select the right SETTINGS – the paper size & orientation, whether your document is single-sided or double-sided (all MFDs default to print on both sides of the paper to save costs!)

When you are ready – simply click on PRINT.

There are printers/MFDs in or near to all PC classrooms, public areas as well as on each floor of the Sir Duncan Rice Library.  To retrieve your documents simply hold your student ID card against the front of the MFD/printer or use the screen to login.  This short video will show you how easy it is to do!

Sending print jobs from your laptop and mobile device:

  • Find information on how to configure your personal device to the printing network here. This is a one-time set up and you won’t have to repeat it every time you send jobs from your laptop!
  • Also see the guide about printing from a mobile device when working on the move. WebPrint allows you to send jobs from your phone or tablet and collect from a networked MFD/printer.
