Printing and Photocopying
There are MFDs (multi-functional devices which incorporate printers, photocopiers, and scanners in one) available in the Library and in the computer rooms and you can release your documents on any of these. You must have an SGUL username and password to use the MFDs and have credit on your account to print or photocopy.
For SGUL students:
Your account balance can be checked and topped-up by using:
- The cash-loader in the main computer room. This accepts coins and notes but does not give change.
*Online Payment - coming soon*
For NHS staff:
There is an NHS printer in the main computer room from which you can print for free if you are logged into one of the four NHS computers. If the paper has run out in the printer, please go to the Library Helpdesk.
If you log into a SGUL computer and print from that, you will need to ensure you have credit on your printing/photocopy account. To top-up and check your balance you can use the cash-loader in the main computer room by manually typing in the login username and password you use for SGUL networked computers. This accepts coins and notes but does not give change.
*NEW - You can now print documents from USB*
The new MFDs allows you to print: PDFs, Word documents and Jpeg image files.
Cost of printing
Printing costs can be found on the portal on Central Printing Services FAQs page on the portal. (SGUL password required)
Scan-to-email and scan-to-USB is available on any of the printers in the Library and computer rooms. This will allow you to send your scanned document to your SGUL email address (not available to NHS staff) or save to a memory stick (available to all). This is a free service, ask at the Library Helpdesk if you need help.
WiFi connectivity, via the Janet Roaming Service, is available in the Library and the Social Learning Space, just outside of the Library. Please note due to licensing restrictions, WiFi access is only available to university staff and students. To find out how to access WiFi see our Help page.
We have 60 Dell laptops for use in the Library during opening hours. They are self-service and are available from the trolleys, located around the Library. Cables are provided at the helpdesk. Black and white wireless printing is available from the laptops. For further information, please speak to a member of staff at the Library Helpdesk.
You can connect laptops, netbooks, or your own device directly to the SGUL network by using the ethernet cables (see image below). These are available in the Silent Study Spaces. Please note that you will still need a valid network login.
