Multi-functional device printers (MFDs)

We have Konica Minolta multi-functional device printers, known simply as MFDs, located across both our campuses, Mt Albert and Waitākere. Students can use these to print course material and assignments, to scan and send documents, and copy. You can also print from any computer or personal device on campus. 

Please note that a current student ID card is required to use our MFDs.

Printing, copying and scanning are available in both black & white, and colour. Printing is fairly cheap, see the print and copy cost below:
