Online Library: Printing Account

Changes to Student and Staff Printing

New Printers 

We will be introducing a new print system to students over the next couple of months. This will provide a more robust system and allow easier access to printing and digital services here at BPP.

This process should take around 6 weeks and will involve replacing some of our existing out-of-date printers (although some of those machines will remain).
Please see below for our FAQs and a guidance document to the new print system.



Old Printers

The old print system is currently being replaced on a site-by-site basis. For those sites currently still using the old system, printing from your own device (laptop/mobile phone/tablet) is no longer possible so please use one of our Library PCs to print. 

Print jobs are sent to your personal print queue rather than a specific printer, so please select the ‘Follow-You Q’ option as the printer for your document. You can then log into any campus printer using your network username (e.g. and password to release your print jobs. 

To check your print account balance, view your recent printing and copying transactions or top up your balance by credit or debit card, please click on the ‘Top-up My Print Account’ icon found on the desktop of all library PCs. Where the library has changed to Secure Print please do not top up the icon on the desktop. You must now use PaperCuts.


Please note that the library can only provide basic advice - for more technical help, please raise a ticket with IT support on their service portal.
