Payments can be made with Electron, Delta, Switch, Maestro (UK only), MasterCard and Visa. The University does not currently accept the American Express or Diners Card.


Refunds cannot be given for unused print credit.

Your print credit will be refunded if the printer does not print your work satisfactorily due to a printer fault. In this case, bring all the affected output to the help desk who will be pleased to give you a refund of print credit.

Refunds will not be given if the mistake is yours (such as choosing the wrong output or asking for too many copies) or if you have credit left at the end of term. 

Mobile and remote printing

You should also be able to print from your own laptop or mobile device.

If you have any questions about printing please do not hesitate to ask at one of the LRC Help Desks, alternatively look at the printing from graphical packages page for more hints and tips.
