When you send something to print, you send this to a ‘virtual’ print queue, rather than to a specific printer. This means you can release your print job from any of the MFDs across campus.
There are two queues to choose from, PaperCutBW and PaperCutColor. If you want to print in colour, you must send this to the PaperCutColor queue. Here’s what the two queues look like after clicking File > Print in Word:
If you haven’t already done so, associate your ID Card with the MFDs by following this guide.
Once associated, whenever you need to release your print jobs you can hold your ID Card next to the card reader marked on the MFD. You can then select jobs to print or print all your pending jobs.
If you haven’t associated your card, you’ll need to manually enter your username and password using the touch panel on the MFD.
There are MFDs in all Open Access areas at the Ipswich Campus.
If you are a staff member, you’ll find additional MFDs located in staff-only areas.
