Copy and print
Uppsala University has a printing and copying system for students and employees with which you can print, copy and scan documents.
The printing system eduPrint can be used by students with an active student account at Uppsala University as well as by visitors at the university’s libraries. Students pay less for their printouts than non-students. You can use any student or library computer at the university to print, as well as your own computer, tablet or smartphone.
To get started, you have to be connected to the wireless network eduroam (not UpUnet-S), your password A and your campus card. You also need to have loaded money onto your eduPrint account. Log in using your campus card at any eduPrint printer, after an easy registration procedure at the printer.
How does eduPrint work?
The printing system applies a so called "Follow Print", that is, printing jobs are sent to a central queue. Instead of writing directly to a selected printer, eduPrint stores your printing until you choose which printer to use. When you make a request to print, an amount will be withdrawn automatically from your eduPrint account
When printing you have two different options of eduPrint printers. One is a traditional printer queue that uses a client software for authentication. The other is a kind of AirPrint printer, also possible to use by tablets and smartphones. The traditional printer has more options when printing, while the AirPrint printer only has basic functions as colour and paper size. The AirPrint printer comes in two versions, mob-black-uu for black and white printouts and mob-colour-uu for colour printouts.
You can also send your documents for printing by email to the address email@example.com for black and white printouts or firstname.lastname@example.org for colour printouts. You can send documents by email from any network, not only eduroam.
When your printing job is submitted you can use any eduPrint printer. First you wake the printer up if it is asleep by touching the screen. You may then log in with your campus card or with user-id and password A. The first time you place your card on the card reader you will be asked to log in with you user-id and password to associate your card with your account. After this the card is registered and you log in by placing your card on the card reader. Printouts that are not fetched within three days will be deleted automatically and will not be charged.
Paying for your prints
To pay for your printouts and copies you need to top up your printing account with printing coupons or credit card in the eduPrint portal.
Printing coupons can be bought at the reception or service center at BMC, Blåsenhus, Carolina Rediviva, Ekonomikum, Engelska parken, Segerstedt Building and Ångström. The coupons are available in the values 20 kr, 50 kr, 100 kr and 200 kr, but not all receptions have all the values.
See the instructions on how you buy credits for printouts with your credit card.
