New University printers

Over the summer the University replaced the printers across the University.

How to print to the new system, provided by Sharp

1.         In the Library the University PCs will default automatically to a print queue called UPS2.

Elsewhere in the University you can print to either UPS1 or UPS2.

2. If you usually print from your own device you will need to download the relevant print driver (see instructions at

3.  For returning students, your print credit will have transferred to the new system.

4. You can add credit to the Sharp system:

  • online via using your credit card, debit card or PayPal
  • or by using the Sharp cash loaders located at the rear of Level 2 in the Library.

The Sharp printers have lots of new features such as the ability to preview scanned documents before printing and to send your scans to your personal e-mail address.

All the information you need to access the print service and answers to Frequently Asked Questions can be found via this University Print Service (UPS) web page:
