How to use printers

All students are able to print, scan and use the copier function on any printer, as long as they have a valid MIT student card.

Step 1: Register your student card using one of the printers.

Step 2: Go to your nearest top up pay station (kiosk machine) to load money, or you go online to top up.


You will need to register your MIT ID card on the printer before it can be used for the first time.

The printing and copier functions are not free. You must top up your account before using these features.

Scanning is free but you still need to have some money on your account for this to work.
