Once you have prepared your files, print your PDF file from Adobe Acrobat directly to your printer of choice.

Once you have sent the file to the printer, you will need to release your job from the Release Station in the Media Hub.

  1. Swipe your student card at the Release Station and your print file will appear on the screen.

  2. Release the print job by hitting the Print button, which is displayed in the top right of the screen.

  3. At this point your UniPrint account will be charged and the file will begin printing.

4.0 Print Room Quick Print Station

The Print Room offers three Quick Print Station's. These computers are only to be used for sending print files and do not require student login. Please be considerate of other students wanting to print. If you notice an error or need to spend time fixing your file, please return to your personal computer or log on to a lab computer.

Please ensure your file has been converted into a flattened PDF on a USB before using the Quick Print Station, as there is strictly no editing or web-surfing such as Google drive, Dropbox or etc.

Please ensure you have your Student ID card. This is used during the process of sending and releasing prints from the Media Hub.

After you've sent your print, your requests will appear on the Media Hub Release Station. Once you have approved and released your print job, the printing process will commence.
