Terms and conditions

1. The free quota is the same for each student regardless of status, department or course. Maximum limits will be set to ensure that students cannot accumulate more than 1 years’ (three terms’) worth of free quota.

2. For faulty/damaged prints/copies, the ISD Service Desk will check the faulty/damaged output and then re-credit the amount of the damaged pages to your print account.

3. No refunds will be given on User Purchased Quota purses therefore do not buy too much credit

Important: Any attempt to bypass the print charging system is a disciplinary offence which will be referred to the Dean of Students.
