Printing Services

HKBU has implemented a printing system called “Follow-U-Print” which allows students to submit printing in designated locations with their own computer or devices with print quota or Octopus payment.

Student Print Quota

IT Committee (ITC) has endorsed the provision of the following print quotas to the students on starting of each academic year:

  • Year 1 – HK$120
  • Year 2 – HK$150
  • Year 3 – HK$180
  • Year 4 – HK$180
  • Postgraduate – HK$180


Students can carry forward their unspent quota to their next year of study. However, all remaining print quota will expire as graduate.

Follow-U-Print Services

Follow-U-Print is a printing system going to enhance printing services and experience for the student community. It has been deployed in ITO’s User Computing Centres, AAB Learning Commons areas, and Fong Shu Chuen Learning Commons areas. Users can print at any workstation in said locations, as well as their own notebook personal computer or MacBook, even iPad or iPhone. “Follow-U-Print” means submit printing at anywhere, then release printing at any “Follow-U-Print” printers around the campus. The print quota will be deducted at the time of releasing the print job. Please note that all unreleased print jobs will be removed from the queue after 24 hours. The system also accepts Octopus payment.
