Lab Printing

All computer labs have laser printing for your convenience.

How to Conserve Paper When Printing in the Labs

The following are some simple steps you can take that will help conserve printing resources:

  • DO NOT use the lab printers for copying organizational/departmental flyers, announcements, newsletters, etc. Considering alternative methods of communication (i.e. e-mail, etc.) if flyers are required use a copy machine to make copies.
  • DO NOT use the lab printers for personal business needs. This is prohibited by the Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Always use the “Print Preview” option before printing to verify that you are printing the material you need and it is formatted correctly.
  • Print only Web pages that you need, not an entire website.
  • DO NOT reprint your work after every change. Instead, print only a draft and a final copy upon completion.
  • When printing PowerPoint presentations, print more than one slide per page unless otherwise advised by your instructor.
  • Be certain to log off your lab workstation when finished to prevent someone else from using your login.
  • Print single-sided ONLY when absolutely necessary.
