Overview

From the feedback of our users, printing is regarded as one of the most important services. To provide printing convenience to campus community, Satellite Printers are introduced with 24×7 printing and more printout pick-up points on campus.

As the name suggests, these printers are scattered across different locations of the campus, capable of black-and-white or color printing on double sides (i.e. “duplex”).
