Welcome to all new students- how printing and photocopying works….

You have a secure personal credit account on the campus network to pay for your printing and photocopying. You can add credit to this account using a debit or credit card payment via a secure website or if you wish to pay cash Pay Stations are also available throughout the University to top up.

myPrint is a web based service available on and off campus- so you can actually send documents to print from home and collect them on campus.

myPrint is accessed through the following website

Welcome back to our returning students!

Welcome back- we hope you had a refreshing break and are ready to dive back into your studies and Cardiff life.

Recently we have had some developments in the library that might make your life that bit easier that you should take a look at;

Remember we are here to help, so feel free to contact us or drop in and ask for help at the enquiry help.

We’ll be advertising our usual drop in library clinics soon.

Wireless Printing


Alternatively, your myPrint account can be accessed here: https://myprint.cf.ac.uk:9192/user. Sign-in, select webPrint and follow the instructions to upload your document(s). You can then release your printing from any of our FOLLOW-ME printer/copiers on campus.

Want to print from your laptop?

It is now possible to print from your laptop to one of the multi-functional devices (MFD’s) in the Libraries, if you have a myPrint account.

Log into myPrint, select the webPrint option and upload your document.  Visit a device to download your work, note it will auto-delete after 4 hours

More instructions available here: http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/insrv/resources/guides/inf097.pdf

This will also work if you want to send a printing job from home and pick it up in the library.

Printing and photocopying in the new library

We will have a new network printing system in the Library called papercut. The new printing system will be installed ready for the opening. It will offer users greater flexibility and more options for completing print jobs, and enable easier monitoring of the sustainability and management of the cost and environmental impact of the printing. The new system also has greater potential for future developments….watch this space! 😉 Students, researchers and staff will still be able to add credit to their print accounts using newly installed kiosks, or via the online e-payment website.

Your existing print balances will be carried forward onto the new system.

There will be an alternative pay as you go method for NHS users of the library and people who don’t have University accounts.

We recommend that the Emos photocopy cards currently in use are used up before we move as they will no longer be used at the heath park campus.

Staff in the libraries can assist you in how to use your network account for printing and photocopying before we move.
