Tap to print and tell us what you think

From 13 July we are trialling 'tap to print' on some of our printers. Tap to print is a low contact method of printing your documents, removing the need to use the touchscreen.

Try tap to print and tell us what you think.

How tap to print works

Touch your UQ ID card to the card reader of one of the specially signed trial printers in our libraries. Provided you have sufficient print credit, all the documents you have queued in your print account will be printed automatically. The printer will then log you out.

Print jobs will be: A4 paper, double-sided and grayscale unless you adjust the default print settings when printing. 

Remove unwanted print jobs before you print

Before using tap to print, remove any jobs you do not wish to print (and pay for) from your print account. 

  1. Log in to your print account 
  2. Click Jobs pending release
  3. Click the Cancel link beside any jobs you do not want to print.

Tap to print locations

Tap to print will be rolled out to the following locations from Monday 13 July:

  • Architecture & Music Library
  • Biological Sciences Library, level 2
  • Central Library, level 1
  • Dorothy Hill Engineering and Sciences Library, level 2
  • Herston Health Sciences Library
  • JK Murray Library, level 2 (UQ Gatton)
  • Walter Harrison Law Library, level 2.

All printers in the trial will be specially signed. All other printers are operating as normal.

What if something goes wrong

If you believe you have been charged in error for an unwanted print job, you can request a refund in your print account.

We will contact you as necessary about your request and automatically refund your credit if your request is successful.

Tell us what you think

Complete a short (1 question) survey and tell us whether you like tap to print. Thank you for your feedback!
