Office Printers on campuses

Based on the directive from Senior Management Group, UniSA has implemented a standard default printer setting across all campuses. The default printer configuration states that printouts by default will be:

  • black and white
  • duplex/double-sided

Users can change these settings per document, however group policy will return the settings back to above stated defaults.

NOTE: This means that users can no longer set other settings, like Secure Printing or Stapled outputs, as default.

  1. Type desired print server in Windows search:
    • Mawson Lakes/Whyalla/Mount Gambier
    • City West/Light Square/101 Currie Street
    • City East
    • Magill
  2. Hit Enter
  3. Double-click required printer(s) to install
    NOTE: Printer naming convention if you are located within an Academic Unit <CAMPUS>-<BUILDING>-<LEVEL>-<ROOM>-<PRINTER TYPE>. Printer naming convention for all other UniSA Staff <ORG2>-<CAMPUS>-<TYPE>-<BUILDING><LEVEL>-<ROOM>

NOTE: If you are adding an office printer on a personal device, when prompted for user name and password ensure you enter username in the format - uninet\<UniSA username>.

For step by step instructions (including screenshots) see the add printer page.

NOTE: Local printers are not on the network and are used under special circumstances only.

To add a local printer, please contact IT Help Desk to raise a call for Campus IT Team to facilitate the installation of drivers and adding the printer on the computer.

NOTE: The local printer will have to be manually added on each computer that requires access to this printer.

NOTE: Setting up a Follow-You-Print-Q also provides secure printing options. A staff member either taps their ID card or manually logs in to the printer to retrieve the secure document.

To setup secure print on a Windows computer, please contact the IT Help Desk. The request will be escalated to Campus IT to setup secure printing.

NOTE: Consider the following before requesting secure printing:

  • It is currently only available for Windows Operating Systems.
  • Secure printing will have to be setup everytime the workstation is logged off and on.
