Printing

IT Services recommend that you don’t buy your own printer. You can print at very low cost to any of our multifunction printers around the university from an LJMU PC in the library or a classroom, or from your personal laptop, PC, tablet or phone. Most LJMU students also qualify to receive £50 free credit to their printing account when they start university.

We also offer a wide range of bespoke printing services such as lamination, thesis/dissertation binding and much more.

All our printers also have a scanning function where you can scan documents quickly and easily with OCR, multipage feed and more.

We also have lots of IT help, guides and more info in our IT help pages.
