Printing and photocopying on campus

Once you send your your documents to print you can pick them up at any student printer within 24 hours.
Our new ‘AppsAnywhere’ service allows you to access some of Queen Mary’s specialised apps when away from your department or off-campus. You can also access them from your own device through Apps Anywhere service.
There are are also several rooms around the campus that contain computers for you to use. Some are used for teaching, so we ask that you leave these 10 minutes before the class is scheduled.
In general, any computer will have the applications you need for your course.
Your School will let you know where to find any specialist software that you need (e.g. in Computer Science, Economics and Engineering).
We have an interactive map showing which computer rooms have empty seats. This is available here.
Please familiarise yourself with the rules in place to protect yourself and others.
