Student Printing Charges

Basic costs:

  • A4 Black and White - 5p per sheet.
  • A3 Black and White - 10p per sheet.
  • A4 Colour - 25p per sheet.
  • A3 Colour - 50p per sheet.

Student-black-and-white

A one-sided sheet of printing will cost 5p and a double-sided sheet will also cost 5p (2.5p per side).

Student-colour

A one-sided sheet of printing will cost 25p, and a double-sided sheet will also cost 25p (12.5p per side).

The printing system will automatically detect which pages are black & white and which contain some colour.
If a document is sent to the 'Student-Colour' print queue, any pages that contain colour will be charged at colour prices.

The remaining pages will be charged at the lower black & white prices.

Here is an example to explain how it works:

A two-page A4 document, containing one black & white and one colour page, was printed double-sided using the Student-Colour printer:

Cost will be 2.5p+12.5p (per side) = 15p

Some applications have a print setting that can override the selected print queue. This setting is sometimes called 'colour' or 'colour mode'.

If the 'Student-Black-and-White' printer is selected, but this setting is changed to colour, then the document will be printed in colour.

The same basic costs also apply to photocopying.
