There are two types of printer available for use at Imperial: touch card printers (found in public and restricted areas) and smaller networked printers without touch card readers.

You can print to these machines using either a College computer or your personal laptop or mobile device (smartphone or tablet e.g. iPad).

If you experience any problems when using the printers, browse the FAQ: Printing below or contact the ICT Service Desk.
