Printing Credit

What do I do if my credit balance does not appear or update?

If your printing balance does not appear in the MyPrint portal, please contact the IT Service Desk via the Live Chat System or on 020 7882 8888.  Our lines are open 24/7.

 Enabling your ID Card

To register your card, you will need to do the following:

Please note, you will only need to do this once and can be done at any HP printer across campus.

  1. Swipe your ID card onto the card reader located next to the print display.
  2. You will be prompted to enter your username and password on the print display. This is your Queen Mary username and password that you use to log onto the computers. (Remember, the password is case sensitive so please use the arrow key to switch between uppercase and lowercase where needed)
  3. Press OK.
  4. When finished, please remember to Sign Out.

Your card is now enabled and ready to use on any HP printer on campus. You can now swipe your card at the reader to access printing. Find out more on Enabling your ID card.


Printing From a QM Managed Computer

When printing a document from a QM managed computer on campus, please select MyPrint on queue from the printer drop down menu. This should be set to default on all campus computers.

What Do I Do If the Print Queue Does Not Appear?

If MyPrint does not appear automatically in the list of printers, please contact the IT Service Desk.
