Printing and Photocopying
From 01 August 2010, the College introduced a new Printing Policy for Students. The purpose of this policy is to help the environment by cutting down our volume of printing.
- Standard Allocation / Quota is £7.50 per year (150 sheets single sided/300 sheets double sided - mono - provided free of charge by The College).
- Printing/Copy costs = 5p per mono page (Black and White) single or double sided; 10p per colour page single or double sided.
How It Works
Each time you print or copy, the cost will be deducted from your standard allocation. Each time you print a popup will inform you of the charge and your remaining balance. You can view your printing history by clicking on the tray icon. The tray icon looks similar to a clipboard and is located in bottom right of your screen.
If you run out of printing credit, you can top-up as follows: -
- Via the Student Portal - follow the link to "Topup". You can transfer credit from your HIKO Card to your Printing Allowance, providing you have sufficient balance available.
- At a Service Till - where you can top-up your printing allowance by HIKO Card, Credit/Debit or Cash. Tills are available at the Main Reception, Finance Office or Library.
