Printing to the Canon multi-function printers

Canon multi-function printers are automatically installed on centrally administered Windows computers, so adopting it does not require measures from you. You can identify their queues by the names starting with Smartcard-PCL or Smartcard-PS.


Register the card

Identification is possible with the following means:

  • Unigrafia cards
  • New Lyyra cards which have a contactless payment feature
  • HSL travel cards

When using a new card for the first time, you will have to register the card personally using your own university username and its password.

  • Take the card to the read area.

There are differences in the sensitivity of cards. For example, it is worthwhile taking the card out of the protective cover if the equipment does not otherwise identify the card.

  • Touch the User Name text field on the display.

  • Your username is now associated with the card and you can use it.

Only one card at a time may be associated with your username. If the card is lost, you can register a new card for yourself. After that, no-one can use the old card to print your jobs.

Releasing the print from the printer

Choose a printer with a name containing the word "Smartcard".

Go to the nearest Canon multi-function printer and do the following:

  • Log in to the printer using your ID card.
  • Select Secure Print.

  • Remember to finally log out with button (4).
  • Jobs will automatically be removed from the queue after four hours if they are not printed.

Wait until all pages have been printed. If you log off the multi-function printer while printing, printing will stop and not all pages will print.

Scanning to e-mail

Using the multi-function printers, it is possible to scan documents directly to e-mail. By default, scanned documents are sent as an attachment to your own e-mail, but you can change the recipient to another. However, it is recommended that you send the files first to your own e-mail where you can check and, if necessary, edit the message before sending it to others.

  • Log in to the equipment using your ID card.
  • Select Scan and Send from the main menu.
