With @Print you can send a print job to the University of Otago printers from any device that can send an email with an attachment. You do not need to install anything, however you need to send the email from your student (or staff) email address. @Print will only print A4 documents—if you need any other sizes printed please see the AskOtago IT desk, or UniPrint, in the Central Library.

Only the following file types are supported as attachments:

  • Acrobat (.pdf)
  • Excel (.xls, .xlsx)
  • JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg)
  • PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx, .pps)
  • Text (.txt)
  • Word (.docx, .doc)

How to Use @Print

  1. Log in to StudentMail or your staff email account on your device:
  2. Address an email to one of the following addresses:

    On the UOC campus use:

    On the UOW campus use:

  3. Attach your file/s and send the email.
  4. Release your print job by swiping your student or staff ID card or entering your username and password as usual at any Uniprintstation or MFD printer on campus.

Attaching files

Documents must be attached directly to your email and not as a link or share. Within StudentMail, you can attach documents using the paperclip icon. Clicking this icon will give you four options:

  • Browse this computer
  • OneDrive
  • Upload and share
  • Link

By default, only the option "Browse this computer" will properly attach the document in a way the printer can read.

The "OneDrive" option can also be used, but after selecting your document, click the drop-down arrow next to Share link and change this to Attach.

Converting files to PDFs

Unsupported file types must first be turned into PDFs before being printed directly through @Print. This can be done by setting up a "Print to PDF" printer on the device. Options include CutePDF for Windows or PDF Writer for MacOS.

  • There may already be a "Microsoft Print to PDF" printer set up in Windows 10
  • MacOS has the option to save as a PDF by using the drop-down menu in the lower left of the system print dialogue, but this doesn’t work for some applications
