When you print from a College computer in a resident student or public space, your print job will not print out immediately. It goes into a temporary holding queue. A printed document will only stay in the holding queue for four (4) hours. You can then release your print job to the printer in the room.

  1. Scan the QR Code on the printer using your mobile device (connected to eduroam wi-fi), select the print job and release it.
  2. Use the physical print release station, select the print job and release it.
