Printer photo Multi-Function Devices (MFDs)

On campus, we use Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) to do our printing, scanning, and copying. These devices are connected to the internet so that you can print from home or from any computer on campus and then sign in at the device where you want to "release" the print job. Learn how to use the MFDs using the materials below. If you run into an issue, call Dataflow--that's the name of the company that provides support on these machines, and the phone number is listed on the front of every MFD. They are under contract to respond within 4 hours!

Toner is monitored and replaced by Dataflow.

Paper is ordered by your division, or by the computer lab technician if you're using a computer lab. Contact your division's administrative support personnel for more information.
