Print credit kiosk now available in Lab C

Filed under: News, PC Labs, Printing — Russell Hannan @ 1:16 pm

kiosk_finalDear students, you can now top-up your print credit balance on our new self-service kiosk located in Lab C.

From the main screen, simply login to the kiosk with your Essex username and password from the user-friendly touchscreen and keyboard.

Alternatively, if your student card has been issued this academic year, you can use “contactless login” by simply touching the marked area on the kiosk with your card and you will be automatically logged in.

The minimum top-up amount is five pence. The kiosk accepts coins and notes – not cards.

With the introduction of the new kiosk, the IT Helpdesk will no longer sell “paper” print credit vouchers. You must use the kiosk or pay online.

The kiosk will be available 24hours a day, 7 days a week.
