Printing and photocopying

Photocopying is charged to your student account in the same way as printing. For full information, see our copying and printing guide.

How do I print from my own laptop or mobile device?

You can print from your own laptop or mobile device using the EveryonePrint Solution. EveryonePrint supports any client computer on any platform that can access an Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari, and any mobile device that can send an email.

You can access Everyone Web Printing in two ways both on and off campus:

  • Through the web portal found at https://eprint.gcal.ac.uk. Just enter your domain login username and password.
  • Mail in your print job as an attachment to eprint@gcu.ac.uk – you can email from any email address as there is no restriction on what email account you register with or on the number of email accounts you register. The first time you send a job via an unregistered email address you will be asked to register this email address against your domain account. This will associate that email address with your domain account.

Supported documents include Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, PDF and simple text. Standard print charges will apply. All web printing defaults to single sided as standard. The page size of your document must be set to either A4 or A3 to process successfully. You may collect your print job from any of the printer/photocopiers on campus.
