Extension of uPrint Service

uPrint Service Available in Faculty-based Computer Laboratories

After phasing out of the PC Lab Printing service on 15 August 2013, uPrint becomes the only central printing service supported by ITS.  uPrint is a feature-rich, print anywhere cloud printing service operated on a quota charging system.

A total of 10 black/white and three colour uPrint printers are available in the Chi Wah Learning Commons and PC laboratories in the Run Run Shaw Building (RR101, 103 and 201). uPrint service is also available in the following faculty-based computer laboratories.
