Photocopying and Printing Services

Registered students to the University are automatically given a printing account. To enable printing from any computer lab on campus the student must go to one of the issue desk staff, present a valid UWI ID card and put a minimum of $5.00 on to their printing account.  
The library provides a photocopying service at a cost of 25 cents per exposure. All users are expected to locate and copy their own material. Copying done by the Law Library for a non-member of the University, is charged at 40 cents per exposure. There is a 35% surcharge on photocopying for institutions and individuals outside the University.
Students who wish to copy can do so by adding funds to their student print/copy accounts. This can be done at the Law Library, the Campus Bursary or the Sydney Martin Library. Instructions on how to use the machines are posted next to the machines. An example of these instructions is listed below.

Photocopying Services - Non-UWI Users 

Photocopying services are available to Non-UWI users (local and overseas). First a photocopying account must be created with a minimum of Bds$200.00. The cost of copying and delivering materials (via fax, post or email) is deducted from this account. When the account is depleted to Bds$75.00, the account user is asked to provide funds to replenish/top-up the account.

How to use the EQUITRAC Machine 
  • Enter your UWI ID number and assigned password in the copier.
  • If the password does not work, please check with the Issue Desk for help, since re-entering an invalid password too often will cause a temporary shut down of the system.

  • When you have finish your photocopying press END. This is the F3 key. Please report any problems with the system to the Issue Desk. DO NOT attempt to fix problems.
