How to Load Money onto your Printing Account

There are two main ways to top-up your printing account – top-up kiosks and the online Uniprint Top-up Portal.

Top-Up Kiosks

You can use any of the top-up kiosks found in most University of Otago libraries to top-up your printing funds. You must have your Student ID card with you to use the kiosks, and you can use either EFTPOS or credit card (but not cash).

If you are staying in a Residential College, you may be able to make cash top-ups to your printing funds at the College.


Top-up kiosks can be found at:


Online Uniprint Top Up Budget Portal

You can top up your printing account online using your credit card at the Uniprint Top Up Budget Portal.


Printing fund expiry

Your printing funds tend to expire the year after you finish at Otago. For up-to-date information on printing fund expiry, please see the Uniprint For Students information page.


Printing Refunds

If you need to apply for a refund of printing funds, please contact Uniprint via their online Student Printing Refunds Request form.
