Sending print jobs to the print queue
Printing at CSE is now done via the UNSW Managed Print Service provided by UNSW IT.
When you are using a CSE lab computer, you can simply print to the default print queue (named stu), and release the job at any student printer on campus.
If the application you are using has a 'command line' field, just set it to lpr.
To print from the terminal, just use lpr filetoprint.txt. Note that PDFs may not print correctly from the command line - use acroread or xpdf to open the file, and print directly from the application.
Printing A3 or colour pagesThe default stu printer produces black and white A4 pages. However, there are other printing queues available for A3 or colour jobs:
- stu-A3: Black and white, A3
- stu-CO: Colour, A4
- stu-A3-CO: Colour, A3
Releasing print jobs from a Campus printer
Once you have sent your print job to the print queue, you can go to any MPS printer to print it.
- At the printer screen press "Print Jobs".
- Present card to RF reader as directed.
- Enter 4-digit PIN.
- Select print jobs to print.
For more details, see the Campus Printing page at UNSW IT.
How do I set my PIN?
If you do not have a PIN the first time you print, make up a new one and enter it - it will set that as your PIN for future print jobs.
If you have forgotten your PIN, go to recharge.it.unsw.edu.au to reset it.
Undergraduate students do-not have a separate print quota. All print quota purchases are managed via the central MPS system - either on the web at recharge.it.unsw.edu.au or one of the recharge stations around campus.
