Printers, Scanners & Copiers

Printing at the IoA and KICC

A number of black & white printers, colour printers, and multi-function devices (MFDs) are distributed around the site. The name is usually written on the front of each printer. All our printers are capable of, and default to, two-sided printing. If you print to a paper size other than A4 they will use the manual feed tray.

A scanner is available connected to the Windows PC in the Hoyle Print Room.

Please see the Printing on UNIX on the IoA Intranet for instructions on printer commands when printing from the science cluster.

We have how to set up guides for laptops and self-managed desktops.

Printing is only allowed from devices connected to Eduroam and UniOfCam wireless networks, the IoA wired networks, the IoA VPN, and the Astrophysics wired networks.
