Basic information

Central Print Service enables better print management by integrating multifunction devices. By increasing their availability and security, not only employees, but also students, doctoral students and postgraduate students have control over printouts / copying / scanning / sending documents via e-mail using devices available in the corridors in the university buildings.


How to use the Central Print System?

To use devices it's necessary to have:

EmployeesCard issued by CSI after submitting the relevant application.
Students and Doctoral StudentsElectronic Student ID (ELS) or Electronic Doctoral ID (ELD) issued by UKSW.

To use the printing option, you must have funds on your individual clearing account in the CW system:

  • An employee who wants to be able to print but was not included in the statement of his unit must submit #21 - Wniosek o wyznaczenie puli środków finansowych do wykorzystania w ramach centralnego wydruku. The same procedure applies to employees who want to print from the project funds. After completing the application, remember to accept (sign) it by the head of the project supervision unit. The funds remain on the employee's account until they are used.

  • Students, doctoral students, postgraduate students recharge their accounts and the pool of funds for printing using the CW system administration panel using the electronic payment system. One-time funded accounts are included in the figures from a minimum of PLN 1 (one zloty) to a set of PLN 100 (one hundred zlotys). Cash paid into the CW account should be fully used during the studies.

  • Employees who want to use their own funds for printing must report this fact to CSI in order to pin the appropriate MPK billing code.

  • An employee who has lost / destroyed the card may apply for another card (duplicate). It should be remembered that each time a duplicate is issued, the employee will be charged with the amount of PLN 10.
