u:print - printing and copying

With the printing service u:print members of the University of Vienna can set up print jobs and use any available u:print printer.

Printing is possible in colour and A3 format.

How do you get your printout?

  • You can print from any computer room work station – the print job is available for 72 hours.
  • You can print from home with a VPN connection to the University of Vienna. Set up the print job from home, make your way to a u:print printer within the next 72 hours and print your documents.
  • You can use the USB slot of a u:print printer with an external medium (e.g. USB stick) – PDF documents and common image formats (e.g. JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG) can be printed directly at the printer. Other files have to be converted into PDF format with appropriate software, e.g. PDFCreator. The computer rooms of the ZID offer Adobe Acrobat Professional for the conversion of files to PDF.

Owners of a u:book laptop and staff of the University of Vienna have to install u:print first – our instructions may help you:
