Printing and photocopying

There are two printers for student use at GCU London: one printer in the library on the second floor and one printer on the third floor. You can also use these as photocopiers and to scan documents. To use the printer, you must log into a Library PC and send your print job from there. You cannot print from your laptop or phone. When you join GCU, you have £15 on your student print account which may be topped up online, if necessary. Print prices are posted near the printer in the library. Photocopying is charged to your student account in the same way as printing. For full information, see our copying and printing guide.
