Mobility Print (Common Balance only) 

Mobility print provides a convenient and simply way to print wirelessly from smartphones and tablets with minimal user configuration. Mobility print is supported on Sharp and Konica MFDs on the DS-Print Service that utilise FindMe printing and participate in the Common Balance credit scheme.

Prerequisites

  • Mobile device for Apple iPhone or iPad iOS (9.2 or later), or Android phone or tablet (4.4 or later)
  • Desktop Services account for authentication 
  • eduroam or UniOfCam wireless network connection 
  • Common Balance credit (Local Balance credit isn't supported by Mobility Print, for Local Balance, DS-Print for desktops and laptops should be used)

Releasing print jobs submitted using Mobility Print is available at the following (Common Balance) institutions (you must have credit on your Common Balance, otherwise print jobs will fail with no status feedback):

  • Newnham
  • Peterhouse
  • Robinson
  • Selwyn
