As not all users make use of printing on their device, by default, newly provisioned laptops do not come with printing configured. Should you have a need to print, these can be easily be added.
Here are the options available to you:
Local Printing (on-site only)
MyPrintColour is the usual printer everyone is familiar with, and is the easiest way to print with the most options.
To install, open the Company Portal app and search for MyPrintColour, and click "Install".
If you encounter any errors during setup, install EduRoam from the Company Portal app, and try again.
Mobility Print - Autopilot Devices (on-site or off-site) / Personal devices at home
Mobility Print is a new web based method of printing, that allows you to print documents at when off-site and collect them at work in the usual way.
This process allows for flexibility and acess There are a couple of limitations:
- you will be asked for your name and password every time you print.
- configuration options are limited for your prints.
- prints will always come out double-sided.
On a university Autopilot provisioned device, this can be installed from Company Portal. To install, open the Company Portal app on your laptop, and search for Mobility Print, and click "Install".

Email to print
Papercut@Derby.ac.uk allows you to attach documents to an email, which will be waiting to collect from any printer at work.
Nothing to install, just open email on any device (computer, tablet, phone), attach a document to the mail, and send to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Email printing is very flexible, but can be slow, and even fail if the attachment is too large or has content that is difficult to process. Most documents go through quickly, but if you don’t receive an acknowledgement within a couple of minutes, it’s likely there is a problem.
