Printing, copying and scanning

Aberystwyth University operates a 'follow-me' print service which means:

  • when you send your file to print it goes onto a central queue
  • you can then go to any printer-copier and login to release your print job. This means that if the nearest printer-copier is in use you can go and use another.
  • all computers in libraries, computer rooms and staff offices are automatically connected to the central print queue
  • you can connect your own device to the central print queue

  • double sided (default) and single sided
  • printing direct from your own computer
  • printing direct from your mobile device
