7. Self-Service Printing

Self-Service Printing aims at enhancing the printing experience by providing a flexible and easy printing solution on campus. It enables users to send print jobs from their computers to self-service print station.

To use the service, install the required printer software from here. Next, send a print job to the self-service print queue. Finally, get your print job from the self-service print station located at User Area, 1/F, Pi Chiu Building. Printing will be charged by using Octopus. It is expected to have more print stations in the campus as more department / unit / college deploys the solution.
