Printers Work Harder Than Ever

Last Monday saw a record level of printing on campus for most sheets printed in a single day.

Whilst some students have been able to shift over to the e-submissions system and online facilities now minimise the need for printing generally, 145,729 sheets of paper were printed on Monday 10 May. This is over three times the average which currently reaches around 45,000 sheets daily. The previous high for the current academic year was recorded last October at 81,899.

Of course, this date coincided with the handing in of dissertations for our undergraduate finalists which prompted the last-minute surge in printing.

110 bibles, 74 complete sets of Harry Potter novels, 0.03% of Wikipedia, 7 trees.
