Available printers


Printer names correspondent with the location in the building:

  • h0, h1, h1color, h2, h2color, h3: hall h-gebouw, number indicates floor
  • without location (double, color, etc): hall h-gebouw, first floor (will be replaced by h1 and h1color)
  • n0, n1, n2, n2color, n3: hall n-gebouw, number indicates floor
  • h146, n121: indicates room or corridor near room

Some printers have multiple names (printer queues) like h1 and h1color, in this example the name indicates respectively the default double-sided A4 print format and the alternative double-sided A4 format in full color.

These printer also have copy and scan facilities. These can be activated via your 'druppel' (more instructions will follow). For short: At first time usage you must present your credentials (username/password) once to couple the 'druppel' to your account.
