Printing Options

Designed for maximum flexibility, student printing at NYUAD allows students to print documents from any computer via any print station on campus. Each document sent remains in the print queue for up to 24 hours, and is only released by the sender. With the wide variety of locations, there is almost always a convenient print station nearby.

Multifunction print stations can also be used for photocopying and scanning documents, which can then be sent to a designated email account.
