How it works

Before you can use the printers, you will need to activate your account by swiping your student card and logging in with your RMIT login details.

All our printers can print, scan and photocopy. Send your print jobs to the RMIT printing queue and collect the printouts at any printer by swiping your student card. You will also need to swipe your card to photocopy or to scan documents. You can save scanned documents on a USB.

Go to RMIT printing for detailed instructions, prices, and user guides.

Need specialised printing?

Only A4 and A3 page size printing is available on campus. For all other page sizes and specialised printing check the Printers and Printing Services on Yellow Pages.

Architecture and Design students: talk to your teachers about accessing specialised printers at your School.

How much can I copy?

All photocopying is subject to the provisions of the Copyright Act 1968.

The Copyright Act states that, for the purposes of research or study, it is reasonable to photocopy:

  • From a single journal issue:
    • One article or more if the article taken is for a different area of research, or a different course of study,
    • Two or more articles, if they relate to the same subject area.
  • From a book that is more than 10 pages long (and is not an artistic work):
    • 10% of the total number of pages, or
    • The whole or part of a single chapter (even if that one chapter exceeds 10% of the total number of pages).
  • From an online work:
    • 10% of the total number of words in the work
    • The whole or part of a single chapter if the electronic work is clearly divided into chapters.

It may be possible to copy more under the ‘fair dealing’ provision for research or study purposes. To find out if this applies to your case, refer to the criteria set out in sub-section 40 (2) of the Copyright Act 1968.
