Print, copy, scan

To use the printing and photocopying facilities on-campus, you should use your Student ID card and load printing credit onto it.

Using your Student ID card for print and copy

You can use your Student ID card to pay for printing and copying services. The first time you use a new card the system asks you to enter a four digit PIN (follow the menu prompts to do this).

Each photocopier and printer has a Card Reader (VCC) with built in touch pad. Place your Student ID card on the right side of VCC where it is written "Present Card Here" and enter your PIN to continue. The VCC User Guide can be downloaded under "Downloads" section of this page.

When funds on your card run low, you can deposit more credit and use it again. If you lose your card, your student ID number or ADS login helps to identify your outstanding balance and get a new card.

Credit machines (Smart Loaders) are located in the printing areas of the campus libraries and eLabs. The Smart Loader User Guide can be downloaded under "Downloads" in this page.
