Palmerston North Campus

Printers are usually located in the computer labs and/or student studios. When you log onto a computer you will automatically be connected to a printer. Student photocopying is available in the Learning Hub where there are 4 photocopier/printers.​


There is a charge for all printing and photocopying. When you print, your job is sent to a printer account program which checks that your account is in credit. If so it deducts the cost (see table above) of each side, you print. You can delete your print jobs from the queue before they print without charge. Once the job has left the print queue it will be charged, turning off the printer will not stop this and there is no mechanism for a refund as we cannot tell whether it printed or not. To put your account into credit you can make payments at the Student Information Centre (Cash or EFTPOS).
