Simplifying print: a new way to print for staff

A new managed print service for the University, managed by our printing service partner Apogee, is coming soon.

It will provide staff with secure, high-quality printing, copying and scanning facilities close to their work place: see the University Print Copy Scan Policy (pdf) for details. Student printing is already managed this way. It has proved to bring cost savings and reduce environmental impact.

Your nearest printer may get a new location: see the floor plans on SharePoint for current and proposed printer locations.

Placement of printers: consultation phase

IT representatives in each school/department, in consultation with staff and their head of school/dept, will need to confirm approval for the final printer locations.

Sign-off required

If you’re happy with the proposed printer locations for your staff, please confirm by email to Lee Trageser from Apogee, our printing service partner, ltrageser@apogeecorp.com, including:

  • your name;
  • the school or department you represent;
  • and the printer locations (building and room numbers as appropriate) you are approving.

If you want to discuss the placement of printers or any printer issues with Apogee, our printing service partner, come and chat to Apogee staff when they’re on campus (see below) or email Lee Trageser: ltrageser@apogeecorp.com

What the service means for schools/departments

  • Your school/department won’t have to buy or maintain printers or top up paper.
  • Your current printers will be replaced with Multi-Functional Devices (MFDs) that offer photocopying, scanning and printing – and are easy to use, secure and flexible.
  • Printers will be located in areas where staff have free access. Some current print locations will change.
  • Your school/department will only be charged on a per-page basis for services used.
  • Reports will be available to help you track usage and cost.
  • Training will be available for staff on how to get the best out of the new printers.
