Print on One Side
The printers are set to automatically print on both sides of a page. To print a document on one side you must change the printer properties by going to File > Print > Printer Properties > 1-sided.
Only 15 double-sided pages or 30 one-sided pages can be printed at one time. Divide larger documents into smaller print jobs.
Click print 1 time—job is sent immediately to printer.
Print jobs will be deleted from printer queue when printed or after 4 hours.
Allow extra time for printing—avoid busy printing times right before classes.
- Print conservatively—save paper.
Print PowerPoint presentations as handouts with multiple slides per page to conserve paper.
PDF and picture files can be printed from a flash drive inserted directly in the printer.
If a printer has an error message, please report it to the front desk—do not attempt to fix the problem yourself.
