Printing and copying

If you have credit on your IT account, you can print to printers in computer workrooms and UC libraries using Follow-You printing. On this page you will find self-help information about all of UC's printing services.

Follow-You printing is a stored printing system that lets you print from any printer on campus. You can authenticate at any Follow-You printer to release your documents when and where it suits you.


More information about Follow-You printing is available in the PDF file:

Follow-You printers can be found by selecting Follow-You printers (under Libraries and computer workrooms) on the interactive UC Map

The table below shows the charges for printing and copying per side of paper on all printers and multi-function devices on campus.

All enrolled doctorial students will be provided a $90 allowance for printing. This will be added to a Canterbury Card account manually. If you have not received this credit within a week of starting your studies with us, please contact the IT Service Desk who will arrange for the credit to be added.

Students who believe their needs exceed this allowance can raise this concern via http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/concerns/.

Any allowance left at the end of your study with UC will not be refunded. 

To top up your Canterbury Card see the Add credit to your student ID card page.
