Printing from your own device has changed at UvA. There are now three ways in which students and staff can print files from their laptop, tablet or smartphone.

From a laptop you can use all three methods. If you have a smartphone or tablet, then use option 1. 

  • Option 1: Send a mail from the email address at which you are registered at UvA to with the file you want to print as an attachment (max. 35 MB).
  • Option 2: Go to and log in with your UvAnetID. Click Drivers & Instructions. Install the printer driver (within the UvA WiFi network) or the Canon Internet Printer for Windows, Mac OS or Linux (outside the UvA WiFI network). You can then use that printer driver by printing files directly from your laptop.
  • Option 3: Go to and log in with your UvAnetID. Click Print files. Select the file you wish to print (max. 75 MB) and click Print files.

Then go to any ‘follow-me’ printer in the UvA. Log in with your UvA Student or Staff ID card and follow the instructions.
