Wide Format Printing is a self-service system. You can print from any nearby PC or Mac, then use the release station next to the printer to release your job.

To avoid unnecessary and costly mistakes please read carefully the guides or watch the video podcasts on the IT Services web site before printing.

A4 / A3 Printing

A4 and A3 printing is also available in all University buildings. When you login to any University PC or Mac you will see the following two print devices listed:

  • MMUPrint-Mono

Jobs sent to these printers can be printed out at any available Multi-Function Device (MFD) in the University.

MFDs are available on all floors of the Benzie Building and Chatham Tower. MFDs are also located in Grosvenor
