York Print Plus is available in IT classrooms, study areas and the Library buildings.
The service offers:
To print from a machine in a classroom or study area, simply send your work to the printer PrintCloud, and then log in and collect it from any York Print Plus device. If you're using your own device, you'll need to add the print queue the first time that you want to print - see the set up guides below for instructions. We also offer ePrint, which allows you to email your documents to print, or upload them via a webpage.
Check how much credit you have and check your print jobs.

Any unused credit will not be refunded.
Any operational excess will go towards improving the service.
Please note: York Print Plus credit is for use on York Print Plus devices across campus. This does not include devices in the Design and Print Solutions shop in Market Square.
You only pay the colour rate for pages that actually contain colour. This means you can send a mixed document (some black & white, some colour pages) to print, and not be charged the higher colour rate for every page.
However, the printer will detect ANY colour on the page. So if your page has, for example, a blue hyperlink, or a green full stop, you'll be charged the colour price for that page.
When you print a mixed document, the charging can be a little confusing. Although we have a standard price list (see above), the actual breakdown of charging can be a little difficult for you to work out.
You can see how much a print job will cost before you release it at a printer via print.york.ac.uk - sign in with your University account and click on "Jobs Pending Release".

If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Library and IT Help Desk.
Our multi-function devices (MFDs) allow you to print, copy and scan your documents, with options to print in A4, A3, colour or black and white, and to collate and staple your documents. Not all devices offer all of these features - see the table below for details.
Some devices are available with features to aid wheelchair users, including tilting screens (available on all student devices) to enable you to print, and lower devices to allow copying and scanning access.
There are A4/A3 colour printers accessible to wheelchair users in the Library: they are located on the ground floor of the Morrell Building, near the Library and IT Help Desk, and Law & Management Building.
This list shows devices provided by IT Services. Departments also have their own devices, some of which are in public areas and available to students - staff in your department will be able to advise.

All University staff and students can use York Print Plus to print, copy and scan.
Some departments may restrict access to their devices.
Visitors can photocopy in the Library.
You can print to York Print Plus:
Note: If you're using a Chromebook, tablet, or mobile phone, you won't be able to add the York Print Plus printers - you can use the ePrint service to send your work to print instead.
When you print, your work will automatically print duplex (double-sided) and in black and white. Our guides below provide information on how to carry out common tasks.
