Printing is managed by the University’s IT department. For details on contacting IT or reporting issues visit their webpage.

Printing is only available to staff and students of the University of Northampton. Please note that there is no printing facility for visitors or Associate Members (including SCONUL).

At the moment, printing is free to students as the system is still being trialed. This means your account will show a debit balance as you print now, but as and when a pay for use service comes on-line all balances will be returned to zero.

Quick guide to printing

On the second floor of the Learning Hub there is a 'quick release' print station PC, located next to the library catalogue. This PC can be used to log in and send a document to print, or you can use a University laptop (from the laptop cabinets), these devices are connected to the printers. When printing a file, select the printer named ‘UON-Sharp-FollowMe’.

Once you have pressed ‘Print’ it will shortly be available to release from any of the printers on the campus. Please note that it may take a few minutes for your document to appear on the list of documents.

If you are using your own device, or the UON-Sharp-FollowMe printer is not displayed amongst the list of printers, you can submit your print job using the PaperCut web page.
