University of Otago students can print, copy or scan to many Uniprintstations, multifunction devices (MFDs) available in the libraries and student computer areas of all University of Otago campuses. Money for printing is stored on your student ID card and you will need to use your ID card or username and password to access the Uniprintstations. You can get a refund if your print job doesn't come out of the printer.
