Student printing


The University operates using Multi Functional Devices (MFDs) which perform the printing of A3, A4 black & white and colour printing.    

For more guidance on how to release a print item or scanning an item to email, please read the quick guide. Download the quick guide here.

Print anywhere

You can send your item to print using any device by email and over the internet and your printing can be released within 24 hours from any of the MFDs using your Student ID card using the Follow-You service.

Photocopy & scan

As well as printing, the MFDs can photocopy and also scan your items.


Using Print Anywhere by email 

Attach the files you wish to print to a new e-mail from your University e-mail account and send to:

All text entered into the body of the e-mail will be submitted as one print job. Each attachment you add to the e-mail will be submitted as separate individual print jobs. 

Using Print Anywhere from your web browser

Open a web browser and navigate to and click on the Print button. 

You will be directed to the login page, where you will need to enter your Elite username and password, then click on the Login button. Select the print queue you require: 

  • print.mono (for black & white) or 
  • print.colour

Click Browse then select the file or web page address you want to print. You can choose which pages you wish to print and the number of copies. Once you have completed the options click on Continue.

You will then be directed to the Print Options page, check these are correct and then click Continue. A progress page will be shown which will inform you when your print job has been submitted. This can take a few minutes.

When you have sent your items to print you can print it from any printer on campus which will be available for 24 hours after the print job has been sent to the printer.


Follow-You printing


Follow-You printing means that you are in control of what you print, when you print it and which printer you use.    

With Follow-You printing all printing is handled centrally and you choose which printer you release your printing to.

The Follow-You print default queue is set to duplex (double sided) and mono (black & white). 

If you wish to print in colour then you will need to change the print queue to Print.Colour

Please ensure you have the correct settings before sending documents to print, if you wish to print in colour or do not wish to use duplex printing.
