How to Print from your Laptop

If you wish to print from your laptop to the student printers you can install a print driver to do this. This allows you to print straight from your device and skip emailing (Updated April 2022).

Recommended Installation

We recommend installing the uniFLOW drivers for quick and convenient printing. For step-by-step instructions on how to install the uniFLOW drivers, please see the AskOtago Knowledgebase:

Adding and updating uniFLOW/FollowMe printers


If you are having trouble printing from the standard UniFlow Drivers, we have an alternative printing system called mPrint

Windows Instructions

Click here to download mPrint

Mac Instructions
Right click on this link (two fingers on the trackpad) and save it to your Downloads folder.

  • You may get an error message asking you to discard the file. Click on the up arrow and choose Keep.
  • Go to the Downloads folder and right click (two fingers on the trackpad of your laptop) and choose Open (if you just clicked on it it wouldn’t allow you to open it)
  • Open a Microsoft Word Document. You should see a the new mPrint printer in the print menu.
    When you choose to print, mPrint will open a web page where you have to enter your student username and password. Make sure you save it so you don’t have to do this each time.
