Refund policy

Credit may only be refunded where there has been a fault with the printer / copier, eg toner or ink cartridge runs out. Refunds will not be given for any other reason, including:

  • choosing the wrong printer driver;
  • printing a file accidentally or to the wrong printer;
  • printing a file that contains blank pages;
  • printing a file that contains more pages than you expected;
  • printing a file that is formatted for a non–standard page size which causes the output to be clipped.

Requests for refunds should be made to the J. B. Priestley Library Welcome Desk or the Faculty of Management and Law Library Enquiry Desk. The printing / copying claimed to be faulty must be submitted with a brief description of what is wrong, signed and dated. Faulty printing / copying for which refunds are successful will be retained.

Students who are near to completing their course are advised not to add more money onto their account than they expect to use. Remaining credit may be paid towards outstanding Library fines where they exist.
