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 found 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/C3850's.

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

Please note that all printers are set by default to print black and white. The user is responsible for ensuring that the correct printer driver settings are set for the intended form of output, including the duplex setting. Note that printing is charged per side printed.

Scanning, Copying and Printing Costs

Scanning, copying and printing is charged per side. Sidney Sussex uses the "local balance" system displayed as Sidney Sussex : "Balance" via the My DS-Print portal. You will start at £0.00 and decrease as you copy and print. This will then be added to your college bill and your balance will be reset back to £0.00. Scanning to email is free.
