The College operates the University's DS-Print system which allows you to print, copy and scan documents using DS-Print enabled multi-function devices (MFDs).

How do I print?

You can print to DS-Print devices from the MCS computers in the Computer Suite and from your own devices when connected to the University network.

Use the Sid_FindMe printer to print to the DS-Print service. Only DS-Print is supported as we use the local balance, Mobility Print and Cloud Print are not as they require the common balance. SeeHow do I print to the college printers?.

To install and setup DS-Print on your computer, see: Can I print to the college printers from my own computer?.

We have four large MFD printers (Konica Minolta Bizhub C458) that print both A3 and A4 located throughout the college. All of these printers have the ability to staple documents. These can be found in:

  • Library
  • Computer Suite
  • Hall Court Print Room (The right MFD also has a booklet function)

Other smaller A4 only MFD printers (Konica Minolta C3350i/C3350) can be found in the below locations. These are primarily for staff/fellow use:

  • X staircase (first floor landing)
  • Y Staircase (cupboard outside Development)
  • Bursars PA's Office
  • Masters PA's Office
  • College Office (access only during work hours)

If you experience any issues with the printers please contact us.


Printing and copying is charged per side. Scanning to email is free. Charges will be added to your college bill at the end of each term.

If you are printing a document with both colour and greyscale pages, if you select 'Auto Colour' when printing, you will only be charged the colour rate for the pages that have colour. The pages with only greyscale on will be charged as greyscale and not colour.

Sidney Sussex uses the "local balance" system instead of the "Common Balance" system. This is shown as Sidney Sussex : "Balance" via the My DS-Print portal (this link only works within the University network such as Eduroam and UniOfCam wireless networks).

Your balance will start at £0.00 and decrease as you copy and print throughout the term. This will then be added to your College bill and your balance will be reset back to £0.00 at the end of each term.
