New and improved printers for UCT

With Bytes Document Solutions (Xerox) being selected as the new printing vendor on campus, all Nashua devices will be replaced with new printers during December and January. This includes printers in student computing labs, libraries, document centres and departments. A new service, covering printing, copying and scanning, called UCT Managed Print Services will be introduced to campus in January.

Over the next few weeks, this website will be updated with details of the new operation.

What you need to do 

When the printers are successfully installed across campus, you will need to use the Papercut software to print. The software will automatically be installed on staff members’ Windows machines that have Zenworks installed. If you do not receive the software update via Zenworks, or if have a Mac, you will need to manually install the software.
