Printing to Campus Printers Printer Manuals


We manage a fleet of Konica Minolta Bizhub multi-function printers (MFPs) in most departments and colleges across campus. These machines provide printing, copying, scanning and faxing services, all from a single device.

We also provide service and supplies, all from a single location. Contact the ITS Help Desk about any issues related to the multi-function printer in your department.


With MonarchPrint, you can send a document to the MonarchPrint cloud, but it won't actually print until you walk over to a machine and present your ID card. This is great for confidential or sensitive documents that shouldn't be left sitting unattended.

You can also use MonarchPrint to print to any other MFP on campus. Since a print job is not released until you swipe your ID card, whichever Konica Minolta you swipe into will print your document.

The MonarchPrint queue is pre-installed on all ODU-managed desktop computers. If you have an ODU-managed laptop, download MonarchPrint from the Ivanti Portal Manager or Company Portal (Windows) or from the Self Service portal (Mac). Then simply select MonarchPrint as your printer.

Key Operators

Every department has at least one key operator -- a local expert who has been trained on how to operate the equipment. This person can add paper and toner, clear paper jams and do other minor troubleshooting. Key operators can also monitor their devices and view reports about department billing and usage.

Card Access

All ODU employees can swipe their ID card at any multi-function printer to make copies or scan files to email. The cost is automatically charged to each employee's department. The machine will automatically log users out after three minutes, or you can press the END key when you are finished to log out.

For circumstances where volunteers, adjuncts, graduate assistants or student workers need access, or when costs should be charged to a different budget or grant, contact itshelp@odu.edu to request a special departmental MFP card.

MFPs are available to the campus for university-approved use only. Misuse of equipment and materials may result in violations of University policy.

Request MFP Access



We provide printer supplies based on MFP usage. To request additional paper, fill out this form. After your Budget Unit Director signs off, we will deliver it directly to your department.

We can monitor devices remotely and identify most issues as they arise. To report an issue, send an email to itshelp@odu.edu with a description of the problem.

Training is provided when new machines are installed. To schedule in-depth training for your department, key operators can email itshelp@odu.edu.

All normal operating supplies are provided, including toner and staples. You should keep one extra set of consumables (paper, toner, waste cartridges and staples) on hand. When you change a cartridge, the machine sends a message to us so we can replace your spare.


All printing and copying expenses are charged to departments on a monthly basis, based on actual usage. Currently, departments are charged $0.0225 for black and white and $0.10 for color per impression/print/copy. Some low-volume copiers have a volume minimum in place that could result in a higher per copy rate.

High-Volume Printing

Information Technology Services provides high-speed, high-volume printing for all faculty and staff. If you have a large print job, you can print directly from your computer to our Operations Center in the Engineering & Computational Sciences Building.
