ServicePublic printers and copiers

Printing and copying (from) anywhere on campus

With the Ricoh-FollowMe printing solution, users can print, copy and scan documents at many public multifunction devices on campus. Print jobs for these devices can be sent from anywhere via the Ricoh FollowMe printing solution. This allows anyone with a Uni ID or project number to submit a print job from a PC, from a mobile device or via the Ricoh EveryonePrint web portal, then log in with their user ID at any printer on campus and print it. This allows for flexible printing without needing to carry around a USB flash drive, for example. You can pay with your student ID/CampusCard.

 

Target group

  • Students
  • University employees
  • Researchers
  • Doctoral candidates
  • External members (as long as they have a CampusCard, otherwise only on printers with coin payment)

Use

  • Send print jobs via PC, mobile device or the web portal.
  • Flexible printing/copying/scanning with any desired printer on campus
  • No need to bring a USB stick with you
  • Simple payment with your student ID or a CampusCard
  • Alternatively, there are printers with the option of cash payment (coin-operated), which enables non-University members to use these services.

 

Access and requirements

As an authorized user of the public printers and copiers, you can conveniently send a print-ready document to the central print server with the web portal Ricoh EveryonePrint. You can also set up the print server as a printer in your operating system, which will allow you to send print jobs directly there. (How to do this is explained in the How-to.)

When sending a print job to the Ricoh-FollowMe printing solution, you do not have to pick a particular printer. You can print at every public Ricoh-FollowMe printer or copier located on campus. After entering your Uni-ID (or another valid ID) into the login window of a printer or copier, you can see a list of all your documents stored on the central print server. From this list, you can select and print a document. Please do not forget to insert your Student ID/ Campus Card into the card reader in order to pay for the print job.

Also, make sure the printer or copier is able to produce the demanded print-out. If you want to print a document in color, use a color printer or copier. Color printers and copiers are also able to print black-and-white documents. Some printers do not allow for color print or can only print certain media formats.

Cost

Depending on the selected print options (black-and-white or color, single-sided or double-sided) and media size (A4/A3), the per page printing costs differ. These costs can be found in the table below.
