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