Printing currently disabled on University networks and from University devices

Please be advised that we have taken the difficult decision to disable all printing on the University’s network, and from UoR devices printing at home.


This decision has been made due to a worldwide critical exploit in all printing services, and will remain in place until a fix (patching) has been released. We are expecting this patch to be made available in a few days but there has been no timeline advised at this stage, Microsoft are working urgently on this. We will prioritise our print servers when the services has been restored.


If you require urgent printing capability, based on a legal requirement, please contact the IT Service Desk citing this email. They will be able to escalate this appropriately for you.


Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience this will cause. We have not taken this decision lightly, and have acted to ensure the safety of our network and our University community.
