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. 

If your device is not on the wired network you can request for it to be put on. The form for this can be found here. Resister device on wired network 



In this article:  

For Unix/Linux machines 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. 

Downloading ‘MyPrint’ or ‘Staff Printer’ on Windows 11 

When you receive your new Windows 11 device, you will need to install a software (MyPrint or Staff Printer) to use the printers from the Company Portal. ​​​​​​ 

1. Connect to the University's VPN and remain connected throughout the process 

  • If working on a laptop and using Wi-Fi, see the IT article to help you get connected to the University VPN.  
  • If working on a desktop where the desktop is onsite at the University and connected to the wired network, you do not need to connect to the VPN as these devices are automatically and securely connected to the University's network. If this is not the case, then the process described above, for laptops, will be applicable. 

If you do not have Pulse VPN installed on your Windows 11 device, please download this software from the Company Portal by following these instructions.

2. Open the Company Portal: From your 'Start' or 'Search' menus, type and select ‘Company Portal’ to open the Company Portal application.

Please note: it is normal to see documents in the queue with a status of "Paused" - documents are held like this until the owner visits a MyPrint printer and asks for them to be printed.

If it also asks for an admin password you will either need to book a visit to the service desk or log a request for a remote session.
