Purchasing print credit

Buy print credit online

You can check your current balance and purchase print credit online using a debit or credit card: please note Visa Electron cards are not accepted. The minimum amount for online payment of print credit is £5.


Our printers are smart, and they only charge you for what you print - so if you send a print job that is a mixture of colour and monochrome pages, you'll be charged accordingly and not just at the single rate. Charges are as follows:

Paper choice

Cost (per side of printing)

Duplex discount (13% of total sides printed)

A4 monochrome 5p e.g. 10 sides is 50p - (50p - 13%) = 44p
A3 monochrome 10p e.g. 10 sides is £1 - (£1 - 13%) = 87p
A4 colour 20p e.g. 10 sides is £2 - (£2 - 13%) = £1.74
A3 colour 40p e.g. 10 sides is £4 - (£4 - 13%) = £3.48

Cash payments

You can also buy print credit with cash using one of our special kiosks - available in the Bill Bryson Library (in the Print Zone on Level 2) and the Library at Queens Campus (near the printers).
