Print Anywhere

You can send most files to print via the internet from your computer, tablet or mobile - either via your web browser or by email.

Note: it is only possible to print A4 and A3 - you cannot send posters or other specialised printing using this method. Also, when sending to print via email there is a file size limit of 16MB.

Using Print Anywhere by email

Send your file as an attachment from your University email account to:

  • (for black and white) or
  • (for colour)

Once you have emailed your attachment, the print job will be sent to the queue for release using Follow-You printing. You will receive an email telling you this – it may take several minutes for the email to arrive if the print job is large or the service is busy. You can then release your printing from the Ricoh printer as normal.

  • Only the attachment (not the email body) is sent to the queue
  • The attachment will be printed in duplex and in full - you cannot select which pages to print using the email service. You can select pages using the web browser option detailed below.
  • The email service has a document file size limit of 16MB.

Using Print Anywhere from your web browser

Navigate to and log in with your University username and password. Select the print queue you require:

  • printbw (for black and white) or
  • printcolour (for colour)

Click Browse then select the file or web page address you want to print. Click on Continue to upload it.

On the next screen you can choose which pages you wish to print and the number of copies. Once you have completed the options click on Continue.

On the next screen, check your Print Options are correct then click Continue. You will  then see a progress page which will inform you when your print job has been submitted. This can take up to 3 minutes.

Once you have sent your file to print you can release it from any Ricoh printer in the normal way.

What can I send to print?

You can print Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF and most images using the method above. 

Occasionally a more complex or long document may fail to print using this service. In which case you will need to print in the standard way by logging on to a University MWS computer.
