How to Print, Scan and Copy
In the University you can print, scan or copy using any of the Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) located on the University Campuses. MFD’s are Multi-Function Devices that can be used for printing, scanning or copying.
The University uses a system called “Follow You Printing” to enable students to use the MFDs to print, scan or copy. Prints are released by scanning your University ID card at the MFD and they are paid for by the credit in your Print Account, so to print using an MFD you will need:
• Your University ID card
• Enough credit in your print account to pay for your printing.

The first time that you use an MFD you will need to register your University ID card using the card reader situated on the right hand side of the MFD (see below). You should only need to do this once. Once you have registered your card in future you just need log in by holding your University ID card over the card reader, or if you don’t have your ID card to hand you can log in manually using the display screen on the MFD.
Digital Print Services
Alternatively, you can use the services offered by the on-site University print room, called Digital Print Services (DPS), which is located in MKb, off Molineux Street, City Campus, at the rear of the George Wallis (MK) Building. DPS will print and bind your document for you and they also offer a comprehensive range of digital print and print finishing services which are available to all students at competitive prices.
