Printing for the public

Printing services are available on all campuses, and can be used to print A4 and A3 documents in colour or in black and white.

You can self-service print at guest PCs across all campuses. You can also send a job to print on one campus and release it to print on another.

Self-service printing is paid for automatically using prepaid credit on your print account, which is linked to your guest card and your guest username and password.

Printing from a guest computer

Members of the public can use guest PCs to print PDFs and a range of MS Office documents.

Print a standard document by following these steps:

  1. At a guest PC, open your document and select the option to print. Ensure that a QUT print queue is selected under 'Printer'.
  2. For each document sent to the print queue a pop up will prompt you to enter your Guest Account username and password.
  3. At the printer, log in by tapping your guest card on the orange spot, or by typing your guest username and password on the touch screen.
  4. Your print account balance will be displayed, choose ‘Next’.
  5. Press ‘Print Release’ and your pending jobs will be displayed.
  6. Select one or more pending jobs from the list, then click 'Print'. If you want to print all pending jobs, click 'Print All'.
  7. Collect your printed documents.
  8. Log out by pressing the green ‘Log In / Out’ button next to the touch screen.

Unprinted jobs are deleted after 8 hours.
