Duplex Printing Initiative

Duplex printing was implemented for the start of the Winter 2013 Quarter. Since then, all open computer labs and teaching labs will default to duplex (double-sided) printing on black & white printers only. Any specialty printers in labs such as plotters, and labs that are not IS managed will continue to print single-sided.

You will still have the option to print single-sided (simplex) in all IS managed labs by changing the printing option in the application from which you are printing. Printing costs will remain at 8 cents per side of printing. In other words, single-sided black and white printing will still cost 8 cents per page (or 16 cents double-sided), and single-sided color printing will cost 50 cents per page (or $1.00 double-sided).​​​
