All-in-one printer/scanner/copiers have been installed for student use in common and Open Access areas at Camden and Hawkshead.

These printers make it more convenient and less expensive for students to print, copy, and add printer credit to their accounts. Other features include:

  • printing from your own device;
  • printer credit stored on your RVC ID card;
  • cost savings, and increased savings on double sided printing;
  • £10 credit to start the year for every student; additional printing credit can be purchased at the library desk at Camden or Hawkshead. 

More detailed printing instructions are available below.
