Printing Services

Desktop Services - Printing Service at Sidney Sussex College

The college operates a DS-Print 'Secure Printing' system offering colour printers with a stapling function.

We have four large multifunction printers that print both A3 and A4 located throughout the college. These are Konica Minolta Bizhub C454e devices. They are located in the Library, Computer Suite and two machines in the Hall Court Print Room. The machine on the right in the print room has a booklet function.

Smaller A4 only multifunction devices can be found at various locations throughout the college. These can be located in X staircase (first floor landing), Y staircase (cupboard outside Development), Bursar's PA's Office, Master's PA's Office, Tutorial Office Meeting Room and in the College Office (access only during work hours.) These machines are Konica Minolta c3350 /c3850s.

You can print to any of these machines from any of the computers in the Computer Suite or from your own machine.

To print from your own machine you will first need to install PaperCut.
