New Printers (Summer 2019):

Updated instructions can be found pinned up near the new printers (where possible), or in the 'Related Links' section of this page. You can find the Konica Minolta Bizhub C458 online manual here and for the Konica Minolta Bizhub C3350i here.

The following post-installation problems are being investigated:

Problem: On the 'Release' section, the physical buttons on the screen do not respond, preventing log out or menu choice
Workaround: Use the icons on the PaperCut interface to log out, print or go to the main menu. Typically found in the top-left or top-right corners

If you experience any issues with the new printers, please email

DS-Print - Printing Service at Sidney Sussex College

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). 

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.

Note: All printers are set to print in black and white by default. 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 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.

You can view a list of costs here: Typically, the average cost is:

Colour Size Cost (per side)
 Greyscale US LETTER 10p per side
 Greyscale A6 3p per side
 Greyscale A5 4p per side
 Greyscale A4 5p per side
 Greyscale A3 10p per side
