Adding the "Staff on LeedsPrint" print queue


Computers with a wired connection to the university network can be set up with the "Staff on LeedsPrint" MyPrint queue. 

In this article:  

For Unix/Linux machines and for Mac computers without Managed Software Centre or admin rights please login to the IT website and submit a General Request to set up MyPrint on your device.

If your computer doesn't have a wired network connection you can upload or email your documents to MyPrint.

Please Note

If you're a member of staff coming to campus, with a laptop that was issued during the pandemic, you may be unable to connect to "Staff on LeedsPrint" for MyPrint - the laptop will need to be registered to use the university's wired network.
