Printing at Learning Commons – uPrint

uPrint is a new printing service provided at levels 1 and 2 (CPD-1 and CPD-2) of the Chi Wah Learning Commons (LC). This is a feature-rich cloud printing service which supports printing anywhere from any PCs installed inside the LC as well as from personal PCs (Macintosh OS X 10.5 to 10.10, Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7) and mobile devices (iOS and Android).  Photocopying is also a new service available under uPrint.

The uPrint service supports both printing and photocopying (photocopying is available at some uPrint printers but not all).   Users can print from the PCs installed in the LC as well as personal PCs (Macintosh OS X 10.5 to 10.10, Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7) and mobile devices (iOS and Android). 

There are a total of 9 printers (7 black/white and 2 color printers) inside the LC to support A4 and A3 size printing and photocopying. The uPrint service uses a print quota system.  A user can add quota into his/her HKU Portal account using an Octopus card at any of the 3 Add Value Machines (AVM) available in LC.
