High performance multi-function devices, which can be used for printing, photocopying and scanning (MFDs) are located throughout campus (requiring a valid University of Greenwich computer user account).

Where applicable, printers are also provided for staff in offices and central locations. The use of desktop printers is being phased out where possible, to be replaced with high performance printers in central locations. The university now uses a "pull" printing system, which holds your print job(s) in a central location (print queue). You can then retrieve your print job(s) from any public printer by logging in to the printer, either using your Greenwich Gateway card or by entering your University of Greenwich userid and password on the printer console.
