What is a Multi Function Printer (MFP)?

A Multi Function Printer (MFP) is a dedicated device that combines the functions of a printer, a print release station, a photocopier and a scanner.

When do I use a Multi Function Printer (MFP)?

Print jobs can be sent to a Multi-Function Printer (often referred to as a 'Print Queue', i.e. when you click File, Print and select your printer) via PC's (some PC Suites), Email (only through your NUI Galway e-mail address) or Wi-Fi (requires Wireless Package download).

Why use a Multi Function Printer (MFP)?

Multi Function Printers (MFPs) allow you to manage your print jobs in the same way as a print release station does.  Print release stations must be used when you are printing over the NUIGWiFi network.  They also must be used when you print in a PC suite to the BW_Release and Colour_Release queues.

Multi Function Printers (MFPs) can also be used to photocopy and scan documents.  The cost of photocopying and scanning will be deducted from your print credit in the same way that print jobs are.  This allows for your printing, photocopying and scanning to be managed through the same central print credit without having to purchase separate copying credit.
