We have both black-and-white and colour printers. Please print in black-and-white and in duplex mode where possible. Each printer has a queue for printing in only on a single side and on both sides (duplex). Please use black-and-white where possible; colour ink is expensive.

The default printer queue on each workstation should be the duplex queue on the nearest black-and-white printer.

The printer queues below are available from all workstations. Some workstations also have additional private printers installed. The description lists the default print options for that queue and can be modified in the print dialogue for most programs.

The printers in TYC corridor are part of ICT’s print service (see and is pay-as-you-go. Those based in the TYC should get free print credit every month.
