Did you know you can print from your iPhone?

You should know that you can print from our common-use computers, or wirelessly from your laptop (if you didn’t it’s time to catch up, stat).

But did you know you can also send documents to our printers from your iPhone? Yep. No need to log on to a common-use computer, or bother booting up your laptop. If you have an iPhone, you can simply use that.

Now, the process is a little different from printing from our computers or your laptop. First, you’ve got to download iCMSIP from the App Store onto your iOS device, then simply install and configure it.

You’ll also have to make sure that the document that you want is on your iPhone (you may need to download an app to open it).

And don’t forget to ensure you’re printing to the right queue (South for Logan and Gold Coast campuses, and North for Brisbane campuses).

The process may seem a little fiddly at first, so we recommend you follow the iOS printing using iCMSIP guide to get started. Happy printing!

How to print, scan, and copy

As a student, you can print, scan, and copy on campus.

If you’re brand new, you’ll need to set up a printing account. You can easily do this at any Red Kiosk (located in Griffith libraries and select computer labs), or by visiting the friendly staff at any library service desk.

You’ll just need your student number and some money to add to your account. Oh, and you’ll be asked to select a 4-digit PIN. Once that’s done, you’re all set to:


You can send jobs to print from any Griffith common-use computer, or wirelessly from your own device. And the good news is you can pick up your print job from any Multi-Function-Device (MFD) on campus. That’s right, any MFD on campus!

How much does it cost to print an A4 page? That’s a good question. Check out the Student Printing Costs page for a price list.


Scanning is free for all Griffith students and available on all MFDs. Scanned contents will automatically be sent to your student email in PDF form.


Do you need to photocopy anything? Whether it’s a couple of pages from a textbook or your friend’s awesome lecture notes, you can make a copy in the library. Our trusty MFDs not only print and scan, they can photocopy as well. Genius, right?

Find detailed instructions on how to print, scan, and copy here. You can also check your printing credit online.  And once you’ve finished your studies and no longer need your printing account, you can claim any remaining print credit back.

How to print from your iPhone, iPad or laptop


A long, long time ago (in a galaxy not very far away) there was no wireless printing. You couldn’t print directly from your laptop… You had to save it to a floppy disk or CD, and transfer the information to a student PC in the library or computer lab.

And don’t get me started on printing from your smartphone or tablet. There was a time when smartphones didn’t exist at all. So you can imagine the difficulty in trying to print from a device that wasn’t even invented yet.

But lucky for you, times have changed and you can easily print from your iPhone, iPad or laptop. Student wireless printing lets you print from your Apple device or laptop to any Griffith campus common-use printer.

So just how easy is it? Well, if you want to print from your iOS device (that’s your iPhone or iPad), you just need to download a free copy of iCMSIP from the App Store and follow these instructions.

If you want to print from your laptop, you will need to connect it to the Griffith University Wireless Network (visit the Getting Connected page for help). Then go to Web Submit and follow these steps.

Remember, you need a student print account when you print at Griffith; regardless, if you are printing from a laptop, iPhone, iPad or common-use computer.

You can set up your student print account at the Service Desk in the Library or through one of the red kiosks located around the campus.

How to print from your Apple device


Back in ye olde days, printing at university was a bit of a drama. It involved print cards, print queues, and floppy disks. It’s the historical equivalent of previous generations walking six kilometres to school, in the snow, barefoot. It was tough! (or so the story goes).

But those days are long gone and printing in 2016 is super easy! Especially now that you can print straight from your Apple device.

Simply download, install, and configure a free copy of iCMSIP from the App Store. It allows you to print Microsoft and PDF documents from your iPhone or iPad at all campuses.

If you need a bit of help, don’t stress, check out the Student Printing page for full download and configuration instructions.
