How Does It Work?

Student Printing Periods

Each year there are two printing periods:
Printing Period 1 - 1st January to 30th June
Printing Period 2 - 1st July to 31st December.
(Please note that within the first week of the commencement of each period the University Funded Quota will be applied to your account).


University Funded Quota

Undergraduate and Postgraduate Coursework students will be provided with a University funded quota of $18.00 for each printing period. Any unused University quota from a previous printing period will not be carried forward into the next period. You must have sufficient quota for the job you intend to print. If you print a job during system maintenance, the job will print and will be charged to your account when the service returns. If this results in a negative balance, this amount will be deducted from any future quota applied.


Self-Funded Quota

If you have exhausted your University funded print quota and require more to continue with printing, you will be able to purchase self-funded print quota online via Unified.

On the Unified home page, just click Topup now (next to the Printing Account graphic in Student Accounts). Payment can be made using MasterCard or Visa credit or debit cards. Please note self-funded quota is non-fundable.

Your printing account will be updated immediately after the payment is verified and you will also be notified of your transaction via email.
