On all campus you can use the student printers. You can print, copy and scan with these devices. drucker

Printing quota and color setting

IIn the age of digitization, we would ask you to check whether the respective printout is really necessary and whether it must be in color, for the sake of our environment. You have a quota of 20 units per month that can be accumulated over several months. A black and white print in DIN A4 costs 0.05 units, a color expression 0.5 units. So you could have up to 400 black and white prints per month (but only 40 color prints). Please bear in mind your print volume. If your volume is full/used up, you will receive a message on the printer screen. Please note that the devices will automatically print in color, even if only one pixel color is found in the document. To avoid this, select the option "Black/White" printing.

Printing documents


On all PCs, a printer entitled, "FollowMe" (Print Centre) has been set up. Send your print task(s) to this printer. The print task(s) is/are carried out only after you have identified yourself with your ID card by placing your ID card on the card reading device at one of the printer terminals.

Wichtig Note: If You do not carry out your print task(s), it will be cancelled after 3 days.


If you wish to printout all printing tasks sent to the printer, please enter "Drucken" on the display. After having printed all tasks the printer will give you a short report/information. Should you have printed in colour, the information will also show you the cost you have used for the colour printing. Please bear in mind your print volume which you can check in your print history in the Servicehub.
