Printers on campuses

Follow-You-Print-Q provides a secure and convenient way of printing. Staff can retrieve their documents from any configured device by either tapping the staff ID card or manually logging onto the printer. Please contact IT Help Desk if this printer queue is not mapped on your computer.

Blue plated workstation should have the Follow-You-Print-Q installed. If you wish to add the queue to your own device you can do so.

Please select your operating system/device from below:

Yes. At the printer, you will be able to enter 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 to cancel your old card and receive a new one.

If the printer you are using is located within a unit contact your local unit administrative representative. 

If problems can't be resolved contact the IT Help Desk on ext. 25000.

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.

  3. Double-click required printer(s) to install
