From a SPC computer terminal, simply log in with your SSO credentials and print as you normally would. You will need your University card to release the job from the printer, by tapping it on the card reader attached to the printer. If your card does not work, please come to the IT Office so we can resolve. You can also release your print jobs by logging in to your online portal at and clicking on the “Jobs Pending Release” link.

From a personally owned device, such as your laptop, mobile and/or tablet, go to and click on “Web Print”. From here you can upload a Word, Excel, PowerPoint, XPS and/or PDF document for printing. Once uploaded, go to any printer with a card reader within SPC (we currently only have the one printer, but more will be coming online soon), tap your card and out will come your print job.

In both examples, if you have not released your job within 24hrs it will be automatically deleted from the system. You will not be charged once a job has been deleted.
