Cloud Printing lets you submit a print job from an end device to any of the photocopiers at the LMU or in the University Library on which this function has been enabled. You can then go to any such enabled copier to print your job. A charge will be made for this service. You can print a wide variety of file formats, such as Office documents, PDFs and images.
Use the number on your LMUcard (number of the Students Services Office) or Legic-Karte as ID when submitting or printing your print job. Payment for the printed copies will also be processed via your LMUcard or Legic-Karte.
Photocopiers offering Cloud Printing are designated by a special sticker.

Storing and deleting print jobs
All print jobs are stored on a server in the computer centre within Department VI of the University's Central Administration The server is administered by the company Ricoh. The data are processed in the Münchner Wissenschaftsnetz (Munich Academic Network). The print jobs are deleted following printing. If you do not print out your print job it will be deleted automatically after 3 days.
Each individual print job is transmitted over an encrypted internet connection and is stored in encrypted form on both the server and the photocopier. The print job can only be accessed and decrypted following authentication using the associated Legic-Karte.
