Printing & copying

In order to print, copy and scan you need a student account, and preferably a KI card for faster management. (If you're not a student, you need a library account with a corresponding computer login).

Manage printing account

Refill printing account

You buy printouts after logging in to KI Print, click on Buy print-outs. You buy printouts with a debit/credit card. Here's how to buy printouts in KI Print

Please note that you cannot withdraw money that you have already paid, instead, buy smaller amounts that you know you will spend during your study period.

If you are a student with reading and writing difficulties, you have free print-outs (this requires a certificate from the KI coordinator for students with disabilities). You get your printing account refilled with SEK 250 at a time. Contact the library staff or fill out the form to get free print-outs.

Getting started

As a student, you use your student account to log in to KI Print (the printing system). You can start scanning at once. To print and copy you need to buy printouts. 

If you are not KI affiliated, you can start using your printing account as soon as you have activated your library account and bought printouts through KI Print. You also need to connect your library card and the printer if you want to print with your card. You do this at one of the printers by putting your library card against the card reader and logging in with your login details (cb\personal identity number (10 or 12 digits) and your password). 

If you are an KI employee (also doctoral students) you must first go to one of the printers in or outside the library and log in with your KI login on the display. After that, your printing account is enabled, and you have free printouts.

Print from KI computers

Do you want to print from your own computer? See the next heading.

The default when printing is 2-sided black and white. To print 1-sided or in colour, you must select this manually when printing from the computer (usually by checking Printer Properties). Same procedure if you want your copies stapled directly by the printer.

  • Select Skriv ut / Print on the computer and make sure to use the printer / printing queue called FollowKibSkrivare. (If FollowKibSkrivare is missing in the list of available printers, try re-starting the computer).
  • Go to any printer and swipe your KI card against the card reader. (You may also print without your card, by entering your login credentials on the printer display).
  • Select Print all to instantly print all the documents that you have sent to the printing system. If you only wish to print some of your documents: choose Print release instead, select which document/s to print, and press Print. (Tip! If you press > , the symbol to the right of each listed document, you will be able to adjust the number of printouts of that particular document.)
  • Press Log out when you're finished. 

Print from your own computer

You can print from your own computer in two ways; either via Mobility Print or Web Print. We recommend Mobility Print because it gives you more opportunities. However, you need to install software to print with Mobility Print. You can use Web Print to print from your own computer without installing software.

Instructions on how to print with Mobility Print or Web Print


Hold your KI card (or library card) against the card reader, press Device Funtions on the display, and then choose Copy.
