Student Access to Multifunction Devices

Students in ICT in Education and the ILTC can now print and photocopy to local devices.

After an inordinate amount of to-ing and fro-ing between the TSU and ICT Services, the new student access multifunction devices (MFDs) in the ICT in Education student lab and the ILTC are now configured to correctly charge students for printing in line with University policy. While the system for charging (Pharos) is an ICT Services service, it appears the Division must administer the system for our printers.

In contrast the Library was most helpful in establishing a system to transfer funds to the Division for the use of the MFDs by students for photocopying using the same photocopy cards the students can buy in the Library or the CRC.
