Staff, students and guests of the College can print, photocopy or scan documents using the HP touch card printers. These printers are located in libraries, departments and other key areas across all Imperial campuses.

Access to touch card printers is controlled by your College ID card. When you print a document it is sent to a common print queue, meaning that you can collect it from any touch card printer.

Some departments have smaller networked printers. See Using printers without touch card readers for instructions on setting these up.
