Induction: Smartcard

Library Guide for New Students

Topping Up Your Smartcard

Your Smartcard can be topped up with two balances: one for printing and copying and the other for food, library fines and other purchases. This is done on two different types of machines on campus.

There are 2 top up machines on campus for printing and copying.  There is one located to your left as you enter the academic building and the other one is located at the east end of the LRC (turn left as you enter the LRC and follow the corridor and you will find it on the right hand wall before you go through the double doors).

For your general smart card balance, the machines are located across from the reception desk at the entrance of the university, and there is also a machine at the entrance to the canteen.  Please use this machine to top up if you wish to pay library fines or purchase something from the LRC.

Take care to correctly select the correct machine when you top up.

Smartcard = pays for lunch, buy items in the Campus Shop, buy items from the LRC etc.

QMU Print = pays for printing and photocopying only!
