Further to our update on Friday, we are still awaiting Microsoft’s fix for their critical vulnerability issue and as such general printing from University devices and UoR devices at home will continue to remain unavailable.


As advised on Friday, there are a number of Printing Hubs available on all three of our campuses for urgent staff and student printing requirements.


Printing is now available via PCs* located at the following locations:


  • Whiteknights Campus: 1st Floor, University Library, near the IT Service Desk Counter. Please note that all Library access must be pre-booked as per the Covid-19 Code of Conduct, and bookings can be made here: www.reading.ac.uk/booksd or via the DTS homepage. Please choose “DTS Printing” from the drop down menu.
  • London Road Campus: L16 IoE staff hotdesk room – L16 105, no bookings required
  • Greenlands Campus: GRN Quiet Study Space, no bookings required


*In order to print, you will need to log into these Printing Hub PCs with your University username and password.


If you have a critical business requirement for printing, please continue to escalate these to the IT Service Desk citing this email. They will be able to escalate this appropriately for you. Our teams have been working incredibly hard to respond to business critical requests across the whole University, and in implementing vital workarounds


We will meet again to review this decision on Monday and will provide further updates then, unless we have any developments before then. Once again, please accept our thanks for your ongoing patience.
