Using general purpose Printers on campus

It is possible to print from a range of devices in both Barns & Pools located on campus. These can be either personally or university owned devices such as desktops, laptops, tablets and other mobile devices.

The Follow-You-Print-Q means that you can collect your print jobs from any printers located on campus, within 8 hours of hitting print.

Yes. Whatever device you use to print (UniSA owned or personal device) you will need a UniSA username and password to utilise a UniSA MFD (Multifunction Device e.g. printers, photocopiers & scanners) on any campus.

You can also use your ID card (staff or student) to log onto the UniSA MFDs and collect printouts or scan.
NOTE: If you have not used an MFD in the current calendar year, you will need to type in your UniSA user name and password on the device in the first instance. From then on you will be able to tap your ID card to collect your printouts.

Yes. If you are using an ID card (staff or student) issued before November 2013 you will need to visit Campus Security (for staff) and Campus Central (for students) to have your ID card upgraded. This will allow your ID card to be recognised by the new Library MFDs and the University's Gallagher (formerly Cardax) proximity card readers for building and room access.

Please select your operating system/device from below:

Yes. At the printer, you will be able to type in your UniSA user name and password to collect the printouts. 

However, tapping your ID card on the printer is much faster and more convenient than typing in your credentials.
NOTE: If you have only just received your ID card (new or replacement) it takes an additional 24 hours for the ability to tap and go to be activated on the card.

If you have lost your ID card altogether you will need to see either Campus Security (for staff) or Campus Central (for students) to cancel your old card and receive a new one.

General purpose pools and barns do not have Multi-Function Devices (MFD), they only have black/white printers.

Colour printing, scanning and photocopying is only available on the MFDs in the Libraries on each campus and is charged against your UniSA printing allowance.

NOTE: Specifying colour must be set before you send a document to the printer. If you have forgotten to set this prior to clicking print, you will need to delete the request and print again.

Standard access MFDs/printers located in offices, Library, pools & barns on all campues, have A3 & A4 available.

Some schools have specialised printers which are only available to staff and/or students within their school. To find out if your school has one of these printers you will need to check with either your Course Coordinator and/or school themselves.
NOTE: The IT Help Desk has no control over who can and cannot use these specialised printers.

If you are wanting to print on a larger paper size you will have to seek this service outside of UniSA.
