How to print from a private or unmanaged computer

 Attention! Web printing and Email printing have the following limitations:

  • You can only print to Canon-printers
  • You can only print the file formats found in the table below.
  • We only guarantee A4-printing
  • Black and white prints will be in duplex. Colour prints will be in simplex.
  • They will often not work for employees that are connected to more than one "kostnadsställe".


Web printing

  1. Students: First check your printing account.
  2. Upload your document on the page Web Print. Log in with your LUCAT/Student-ID
  3. Go to the printer.
  4. Log in on the printer and release your print. You can also use the QR-code.

Email printing

You can print by emailing your document as an attachment to specific email addresses. See the Guide to e-mail your document.

Install the printer

You will get full control of your prints if you install the printer on your computer. See "Install a printer..."


  • If you are a student, make sure that your printing account is OK.
  • After printing you will have to "pull" the print from a printer of your choosing. See step 7 on the page "How to print"..
  • If you want to print other file formats with these methods;  first save/print it as a pdf, then send the pdf.
  • Actually, if you want to be sure about the formatting of the final print we recommend you to print/send a pdf in all cases.
