Printing at Wolfson

There are two printing facilities available at the College. The cost of printing is billed to your battels. You require a current university card for this service.

Sending print jobs

From the PCs in the Library

Log into any Library PC with your Oxford SSO account (the same details you use for Nexus 365 email). Load your document (from USB, email or any other method) and print as normal – ensure the selected printer is Library and Lodge queue. Finally, release the job at your chosen printer following the instructions on [...].

From USB memory directly at the printer-copies

Plugging USB memory directly into the machine enables you to quickly and easily print the files stored in the USB memory without having to use a computer. Because the job prints immediately without needing to be released, there is no opportunity to review the cost – please make sure you are aware of the current cost of printing in the College. The following file types can be printed: PDF, TIFF, JPEG. Files to be printed should be saved no further down than the top 3 folder levels.

1. Tap your University Card at the marked place on the copier, the system will log into your print account.

2. Select Device Functions.

3. Insert your USB storage into the USB port on the right hand side of the copier’s screen.

4. When the machine reads the USB memory, "Removable Memory is recognized. Displaying files. Are you sure?" may appear. Press Yes. If the message does not appear, press Removable Memory.

5. If the file to be printed is in a folder, select the folder and press Open.

6. Tick the box next to the file to be printed and press Print.

7. Select the number of copies, and choose between Colour or Black and White using the buttons below the screen. Other options such as duplexing can be set on the screen. Remember that selecting Black and White and double sided printing will save you money.

8. Press the Start button – printing of the selected file begins.

9. Select Remove Memory and when prompted, unplug your USB device.

Using Web Print

Web Print works by uploading the document to a Wolfson College server and the server using its copy of Word/Excel/etc to print the job. It is a very convenient way to print from your own computer without installing any new software. Occasionally small differences, such as the choice of fonts installed on the server, will mean the printed document is not exactly as you see it on your screen. For this reason, if layout is important, we recommend exporting your file to PDF and then uploading the PDF to Web Print.

1. Save your file (or ideally, export to PDF, see above)

2. Visit https://wolfprint.wolfson.ox.ac.uk and log on with your Oxford SSO account

3. Select Web Print from the menu

5. Select a printer for the type of print job you wish to send. Remember that Monochrome (black and white/greyscale) and double sided printing will save you money. The current charges for printing can be seen by selecting Rates from the menu. Select Print Options and Account Selection» to continue.

6. Confirm how many copies you wish to print, then select Upload Documents».

7. Select Upload from Computer, find the file you wish to print, then select Upload & Complete » to continue.
