Update on new University Print System (UPS)

Dear Colleague,

I am very pleased to tell you that the move to the new printing system in the four early adopter sites has been completed successfully.

This important milestone means we can now proceed to the full roll out of the Sharp system and devices.

This will be done in three tranches. Tranche 1 will be 10 to 28 July, tranche 2 is 31 July to 18 August and tranche 3 is 21 to 30 August.

Information on which departments are included in each tranche will be communicated, once agreed, on the UPS web page.

Every installation will be supported by guidance materials, dedicated staff and training sessions.

The new service offers increased resilience and more advanced technology with larger 10 inch printer screens and a physical keyboard alongside improved functions such as the ability to preview scans, print posters and multiple copies to one sheet.

As with any new system there will be challenges on the way, so I would be grateful for your patience if you experience any issues.

If you’d like to try a new printer and ask a member of the Sharp team your questions, a demonstration printer and member of the team will be available on Wednesday and Thursday (5 & 6 July) from 11am to 2.30pm in the 2West foyer (at the bottom of stairs to the Claverton Rooms).

Help and guidance is also available at go.bath.ac.uk/ups. This includes guidance on how to print using the old Canon devices once you have moved to the new system, should you need to.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the UPS Project Team, which includes staff from across the University. Their continued application and commitment has ensured the project has successfully reached this significant milestone.


Diane Aderyn,
Director of Finance & Commercial Services
