How to use the new NCL printers
The printers at New College Lanarkshire were updated over the summer of 2017. It means that you can retrieve documents that you’ve sent to print at any printer across the College.
The other big difference is that we’ve installed kiosks where students can top up their print balance. You can download information here, or follow this step-by-step guide on how to use the new printing service.
STEP 1: Pick up your student card on enrolment day. Part-time students can use their Student ID and password instead. You will automatically have 250 print credits loaded on your card/account to use at any printer.
STEP 2: When you need to top up, take your card to a kiosk located in the Coatbridge, Cumbernauld or Motherwell campuses. If you’ve forgotten your card, don’t worry – you can still log in to the kiosk manually using your student ID and password, just as you would at a PC.
Students at Broadwood, Kirkintilloch or Hamilton campuses can top up their balance online.
A £5 top-up equals 250 credits. A single sheet of black and white print is 1 credit, a colour print is 8 credits per single sheet.
STEP 3: Choose the documents you wish to print (File-Print or CTRL-P) and select the ‘Follow-Me’ printer option and press ‘Print’. Anything that you send to print can be retrieved at any printer across the College, but must be printed within three days or you’ll have to send it again.
STEP 4: Choose the printer you want to use. If the screen is blank, give it a tap to wake the machine up.
STEP 5: Either tap your student card on the reader or enter your log in details manually. You’ll need to register your card if it’s your first use – enter your student ID and password, just as you would at a PC. Remember, your email and password are case sensitive, so please type them accurately.
STEP 6: Now that your card is ready to use, to release all your print jobs hit Print all. To access your print queue, select Print release.
STEP 7: Print release lists all jobs, which you can select and print. You can also delete unwanted jobs from the list. Any unreleased prints will be deleted automatically after three days.
STEP 8: To use the other device functions (e.g. Copy and Scan), select Device functions from the home screen. This takes a few seconds as PaperCut passes through your details.
STEP 9: Always remember to log out of printers by hitting the home screen and selecting ‘Log out’ or swiping your card on the reader. If you don’t log out, your print balance can be used by others.
If you experience any issues, take a note of the Printer number that’s located on a sticker and please ask a member of staff to direct you to the nearest ICT Helpdesk (or telephone extension number 2258). You can also email ICTHelpdesk@nclan.ac.uk
