Library printing

There have been some issues with printing in the library this past week.

We now have a temporary black & white printer available upstairs. Please choose Library Temporary Copier if you would like to use this printer.

There is no change when printing in colour – use Library Student Colour
PLEASE REMEMBER – printing in colour costs 4 credits (20p)

You can also print in the computer suites on the top floor of the main college building.
