Printing and Scanning

Studentprint sticker on the multifunctional devices

As a WU student, you hold a "Studentprint" printing account that enables you to make printouts and copies in the PC labs. Send your print jobs from any computer in the PC labs on the WU campus. In addition, you can scan documents electronically using the "printers" (i.e. multifunctional devices).

All active WU students receive a free credit1) of up to 50 pages (A4, b/w) at the beginning of each semester. They can check their printing credits online and add additional credit through electronic payment (see Manage Printing Account instructions).

Manage Printing Account (pdf)

1) Use of the free credit is subject to the Studentprint terms and conditions (pdf, German only).

Printing, copying, and scanning

You must log in to the multifunctional devices before you can use them. A convenient way of doing so is using an NFC-enabled medium (e.g. your student ID card, bank card, cell phone, etc.). The first time you use the NFC medium, you need to associate the medium with your printing account.

  • Only the last medium associated with your account will enable you to use the printer.

  • You are solely responsible for handling as well as maintaining access to the registered NFC medium yourself. If you lose your NFC medium, you must promptly register another NFC medium with the printer to prevent misuse (as stated in the Studentprint terms and conditions).

Please note: documents in A3 format can be printed on the Facultas machines at the WU campus. You will need a "Facultas Copy Chip-Card WU" for this.

Reservation of PC Labs

PC labs can be reserved for events that are not registered in the course catalog (VVZ) because they were applied for in the course of the semester. In this case, please use the Room Booking System ROOMS (also see ROOMS Booking Guidelines issued by the Teaching Coordination). Your reservation will be processed by IT-SERVICES and you will be informed by email about the further procedure.

If regular courses (i.e. courses that are registered in the course catalog) do not take place in the PC labs (e.g. due to postponements), please cancel the booking in ROOMS. Then these PC labs can be booked for other events.
