Quota Controlled Fast Print Queue service is provided in Computing Services Centre to enhance the existing quota-based printing service with the following advantages:

  • A unique print queue for multiple printers
  • Release of print jobs at the most convenient time and location
  • Deduction of print quota at printing instead of job submission
  • Provision of papers for printing

High performance printers can be found at the following locations:

Users can also release their print jobs inside CityU Library at the following locations:

  • Inside Information Space (2 Konica Minolta printers)
  • Inside Printing Rooms of Oval Area (3 Konica Minolta printers)

(These printers are maintained by the Library.)

To increase user convenience, we have added this printing service to Android devices. Users can submit their print jobs through Android devices. However, print features are limited (only single-sided printing is supported) and limited file types (pdf, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint) are allowed to upload to the central print queue.

  • as long as they are connected directly to the WLAN within campus

They can then release the print job and pick them up at the release station by using their CityU ID Card. The print quota will be deducted when user release the print job.

In order to speed up the central printing system so as to cope with heavy printing demand at the beginning of Semester, students are strongly recommended not to submit their print jobs until they are ready to be released at the printing station as the performance of central printing system will be seriously affected if too many print jobs are submitted without being released.

ALL submitted print jobs must be released within 1 hour or else they will be deleted automatically and students will have to re-submit their print jobs.
