Old print service

New MPS print service


Nashua machines were used.

Xerox machines can be used to print, scan and copy.

PIN code

The Nashua printers did not require a PIN code.

You will be prompted to create a PIN code the first time you access the Xerox printers. You will use this code each time to release your print jobs.


Nashua machines used Equitrac printing software.

Install the Papercut software to use Xerox machines.

Access printers

You were unable to print if you left your staff or student card at home.

The new printers allow you to still print even if you don't have your card on you. Simply log on with your UCT username and password.

Printing via your desktop (staff)

You were required to enter your details every time you printed a document with the old system.

You only need to enter your details once (per login session on your PC) to print documents.

Black and white vs colour printing

You could select which printers to use for colour and black and white print jobs

The default print setting is black and white. You need to adjust your settings in Printer Properties to print in colour.
