York Print Plus ePrint

Print settings

Print settings can't be changed when using ePrint.

For example, you won't be able to print a document which has colour on it in black and white, or change the paper size.

The default is double-sided printing and this cannot be changed.

ePrint enables you to upload or email documents that you wish to print.

This gives you an easy way to print from tablets or smartphones to the University printers.

You can print the following file types:

  • Microsoft Office
    • We don't recommend using ePrint for spreadsheets
  • OpenOffice
  • Adobe PDF documents
  • Images (JPG, GIF, PNG and TIFF)

Please note: Until the summer vacation 2018, there will be two print systems in use, one for staff and one for students. You can see the correct details for your system below.

Printing from a non-York email address

Staff Printers (new system)

If you send from a non-York email address you will need to verify it on first use: you will be emailed instructions about how to do this.

Please note: The ePrint system is new so you need to register your non-York address even if you have previously registered your email address on the the old York Print Plus ePrint system (ypp-eprint@york.ac.uk)

Student Printers (old YPP system)

If you wish to print from a non-York email address, you'll need to register the address first.

To do this:

This will link the non-York email address to your York Print Plus account.

If you email ypp-eprint@york.ac.uk before you have registered, you will receive an automated response with a link to the registration page.
