Printing and copying

Preparing to print

All students with a valid MIT ID card are able to print, scan and photocopy on any printer located anywhere on the MIT campuses.

Step 1: You will need to register your MIT ID card on the printer before it can be used for the first time. This guide shows you how. 

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


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.
