Q. How much does printing cost?

How do I add print credit to my account?


Before taught students can use most open access printers and copiers across the University you will need Print Credit.

To top up your account, go to MyBristol: https://mybristol.bris.ac.uk/ and click on the Printing Credit box.

Alternatively, you can pay online here: https://online-payments.bris.ac.uk/feespn 


  • 5p per side of A4 black & white printing or photocopying
  • 10p per side of A3 black & white printing or photocopying
  • 20p per side of A4 colour printing or photocopying
  • 40p per side of A3 colour printing or photocopying

This charge is for sustainability reasons, to reduce the environmental impact of wasting paper and other consumables.

If you have enough Print Credit then you will be able to print or copy, if not then your documents will not print and you will not be charged. If a document has not printed then the check that you have sufficient credit in the first instance. You can do this in MyBristol, the University portal: https://mybristol.bris.ac.uk/.

Please note: Refunds cannot be given for unused Print Credit. There is a minimum payment value of £5 and a maximum (per transaction) of £50.

Staff and research students are not charged for printing.
