Printing, photocopying & scanning  |  Binders Behaviours  Locker Policy


Printing, photocopying & scanning

All photocopying and printing is self-service. When photocopying, all machines default to double-sided copying as part of our environmental policy to reduce the amount of paper the service is using.


There are nine Multi-functional devices (MFDs) availble for use within the Library in the Emiily Wilding Davison Buidling. All print and copy in both colour and black and white.

There are two additional MFDS in the Research Postgraduate space.


Please visit this IT services page for the exact cost of photocopying and printing. There is additional information on how to print from your own laptop.

All photocopying and printing is charged through your College Print Account, so you will need credit on your account before you can copy or print. This can be done via the online top-up module or by using the self-service top-up machines, which are located at the Computer Centre.

Remaining credit is displayed on the screen after each copy or print, but you can also check by logging into Campus Connect


When photocopying, please remember that it is a criminal offence to infringe the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

The Act is available for reference and brief summaries are displayed by the photocopiers. In particular, multiple copying of copyright material may not be done without the written permission of the copyright holder, except under the terms of the College's Licence, the details of which are displayed.

If you need advice about copyright please see our copyright guidance.
