Here at the University of South Wales (Pontypridd & Cardiff) we offer a chargeable student printing system called SSAA. This is created automatically as part of your Student IT account. Once you have credited your account, you can print from PCs in any student PC lab or in the LRCs based in each campus.
All computer labs have access to a black and white A4 printer and in central locations colour and A3 output.
Adding Credit to My SSAA Account
You can add credit in 2 ways to your SSAA account.
Through our online shop.
The shop can be found within the Self Service Account Admin website, or in the Quick Links section of GlamLife. Alternatively, you can go straight to the shop from this page. When buying print credit from the online shop there is a minimum purchase of £5.00.
Print credit kiosk
Using a Print credit kiosk located in each of our Learning Resource Centres, here you can use cash (coins & notes) to purchase credit.
