Printers and copiers

There are 21 multi functional printers (MFP) on campus. With these printers you can print, copy or scan documents in black and white or color. You can send a print job from a student desktop, your own notebook on campus and from your own notebook/PC off campus. You sign up at a printer using your Tilburg University card and pay with your e-wallet. Click here for more information about the e-wallet.

Print, copy, scan and pay

Go to the nearest MFP and enter your Tilburg University card. When a pass is offered for the first time you must connect your pass to your user name (for this you can follow the instructions on the printer screen). You can connect only one card per account.

  • For printing all your print jobs are selected by default. Select print and press the green button to confirm the depreciable amount and print your documents.
  • To copy you’ll first need to make the proper settings on the display of the printer. Consequently you must press the green button to confirm your copy job. When the copy job has finished the printer will ask you to withdraw the depreciable amount from your e-wallet. If you neglect this, you cannot copy until you pay the amount due.
  • For scanning you must place the file on the document glass, choose scan and send on the right on the printer display. Select and press on the start button when the green light lits. Your file is scanned, when you have scanned all your files select Start sending. Your scans will be sent to your e-mail. Don't forget to log out!
  • It is possible to declare documents that have not been printed out correctly. Follow the next steps:
