The printing procedure has been changed on the network. Now when you print a job, it is not printed immediately, but instead is held in a queue. You need to either login to a Release Station stationed near the printers or release it from your laptop. This new system ensures that you are present and ready to collect your job.
  • Select Print from your application (e.g. File > Print)
  • Walk up to the Release Station located next to the printer.
  • Log in to the Release Station using your network username and password. This is the same login you use in the lab.
  • After login the system displays a list of print jobs. Search for your document by looking for your user name or document name.
    Note: If you can't find your print job, it might have 'timed out'. Print jobs are held by the Release Station for 30 minutes. If they have not been released after this time they are deleted.
  • Click Print to release the job. It can take up to 30 seconds for the printer to warm up after clicking Print.
