Computer access on campus and at home
Over 1500 computers are available across the Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington campuses. You can access these computers using your Massey student ID username and password.
Computers are available at campus libraries, computer labs and halls of residence. Both Windows and Mac operating systems are available.
A Windows Virtual Desktop Service also provides the flexibility to study anytime anywhere. You can access the service from any web capable device. It provides the same level of access to software and files as if you were on campus.

File saving and sharing
You will receive a 1TB Microsoft OneDrive account and a Home (H) drive for file storage. These drives will be available once you log in at a computer lab or the Virtual Desktop Service.
OneDrive allows file sharing between Massey desktop computing services and your personal computer. For course related collaboration, you can also share these files.
Your H drive is for use with our desktop computing services for course related work. Files saved to this drive are securely backed up each night.
Copying, printing and scanning
Printing, copying and scanning facilities are available at each campus library. You will need to swipe your student ID card, or buy a copying card at the library, to use the Fuji Xerox device. If you've forgotten your card, you can enter your Student ID and password into the touch panel to connect to the multi-function device.
You can submit a document for print to any Fuji Xerox device on campus using FollowMe printing. With MobilePrint, you can print from any email-enabled device to any Fuji Xerox device.
