The cost of colour printing across the University will be reduced from Friday 13 February. The cost for A3 one-sided colour printing will be 50 pence (reduced from 75 pence) and one-sided A4 colour printing will be 25 pence (reduced from 50 pence).

These reductions have been made possible by improvements to our technical infrastructure that have allowed us to bring down the cost of colour printing at all UAL sites.

Philip Broadhead, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to reduce the charges for colour printing across the University. I am aware that this issue has been raised by students in every college. I’m also grateful to the teams who have worked together to ensure that we have been able to resolve the technical issues and bring down costs.”

Olivia Wells, studying for an MA at London College of Fashion, said: “This is good news, a very positive thing.”

The move to cut the costs of colour printing follows on from measures at Central Saint Martins to resolve some longstanding problems with the online payment system. All colleges now use the latest PCounter technology.

Philip added: “The next phase of the printing development at UAL will involve streamlining all of our printing services and suppliers, so that as an organisation we can ensure we are receiving the best printing at the right price.”
