Printing from personal IT devices

Updated Sep 18, 2020

It is possible to utilize the UCL Multi-functional printers (MFPs), using your own private IT devices. These include PC, Mac, Tablets and smartphones.

All printers on UCL are connected to a “printing cloud”. When you want to print, using one of the local MFPs, you actually send a “print job” to the cloud. After that, you can access any MFP and it will retrieve that print job from the cloud.

Before you can use the printers, you need to install them first, through a program called iPrint. Instructions on how to do that on all eligible platforms can be found below.

iPrint works on the following desktop operating systems: macOS , Windows 8 og Windows 10.

To install the printers, the device must be connected to the UCL network, either physically, wirelessly or via VPN.

NOTE: Students of UCL need to deposit funds into their “print account" in order to print. Keep in mind that using color-printers is more expensive, even when printing black-and-white.
