Library Services operate a pre-payment system for printing. You can obtain printer credit with:

  • E-payment
    You can add credit online to your printing account if you have a valid debit/credit card. When you are on campus select the 'Credit Printing Account' desktop icon, or go directly to Printer payments, and login with your University of Salford network account.
    The online system will request details of your debit/credit card and you can authorise a payment between the values £1 and £99. You are advised to check your balance before proceeding. The transaction should be processed in real time; confirmation received and amount credited to your printer credit account.
    Watch our video or read our User Guide Electronic Payment For Printing FAQ [pdf] for further information on this service.
  • Cash
    Self-service print credit kiosks are located at all of the library sites. Swipe your card over the kiosk card reader and when prompted then enter your notes/coins into the kiosk machine. Credit is transferred to your printer credit account. A receipt is printed for each transaction. Please ensure that you have the correct change for the kiosk as we cannot provide it for you. Please note that these machines do not give change.

You can check your print account balance at any time via a kiosk or the desktop icon.
