The card readers on the new staff print MFDs (printer/copiers) read the Mifare chip in the new Mifare student cards as well as staff Smart ID cards. Research Post Grads without a staff card or a student card that has a Mifare chip, can print or copy by logging on to the MFD with their user name or password.
If this is proving difficult these Research Post Graduates can exchange their old student card for a new student card with a Mifare chip in Cottrell 2Z (Student Administration). Old cards should be brought to 2z during the office hours posted on the web site at the following link: http://www.aro.stir.ac.uk/studentadmin.php .
All cards issued before September 2011 will not have a Mifare chip. Some part-time Research Post Grads will also have been issued cards without a Mifare card in September.
