Mobile Printing

LSE's new Mobile Printing service is now available for all students to use. Go to http://mobileprint.lse.ac.uk| and log in using your LSE username and password to get started.

Mobile Printing allows you to print from your laptop or mobile device in three ways:

  • Email your document as an attachment (you may need to register your email address when you use the service for the first time)
  • Upload your document to a web page
  • Download a driver and print directly from the software on your own laptop

See below for instructions and frequently asked questions.

Can I print from any mobile phone?
You can print from any mobile phone which will allow you to access email and internet services.

Are there any devices which are incompatible for uploading documents?
iPhones and some tablets will not allow documents to be saved or uploaded. These devices will only allow you to upload pictures. This does not affect the email printing capability.

Are all mobile phone operating systems compatible?
iOS devices (in particular iPhone 3GS) are the only devices we are currently aware of that will not allow web uploads of documents.

How much will printing cost me?
This service will cost the same as normal printing at LSE - 4p per side for black and white printing and 30p a page for colour printing. Please see Online Printing Payment| for details on how to top up your printing account.

How long do I have to release my print job?
You have 2 hours from the time you send your print job in which to release it at a print station. After this time has elapsed, your job will expire.
