Initially these kiosks will be deployed in some of our most popular and highest volume locations:

  • Library - 1st Floor
  • University House - Learning Grid 1st and 2 Floor
  • Rootes Building - Rootes Grid
  • Senate House - PG Hub



Mobile Print Service - Enhanced

NEW April 2014 - Mobile Print now supports printing directly from your iOS device (iPhone or iPad)

Mobile Print is a way to send documents to print whilst on the go and have it ready to collect when you next visit a Kyocera printer.

Kyocera printers can be found in most IT Services work areas

Mobile Print - Updated Settings

Update - The new settings, as detailed below, are now live.

In response to student feeback we will be changing the default print settings on the Mobile Print service to single-sided black & white (mono). Colour printing will no longer be available when using Mobile Print.

This change is expected to take place during the Christmas vacation period to minimise disruption to the service.

This gives customers the ability to print from any e-mail capable mobile device and collect a print job via a Kyocera MFD located within a range of ITS workarea locations across campus.
