Purchasing print credit

Our printers are smart, and they only charge you for what you print – so if you send a print job that is a mixture of colour and monochrome pages, you’ll be charged accordingly and not just at the single rate. Charges are as follows:

Paper choice

Cost (per side of printing)

You can also buy print credit with cash using one of our special kiosks – available in the Bill Bryson Library (in the Print Zone on Level 2) and the Library at Queens Campus (near the printers).
