All computer labs have laser printing for your convenience.

Save money and help UT protect the environment by printing duplex. One page printed duplex (front/back) is equal to the cost of one printed page (front only).

Duplex Printing

Double-sided printing is the default setting in all computer labs. If you do not want to use the double-sided printing function, please follow the below steps.

Steps to print single-sided

  • Select the Print button, Ctrl+P / Cmd+P, or go to File > Print.
  • Select the Properties button in the upper right-hand corner.
  • Select None in the Print on both sides group box as shown and then select OK.
  • Select the OK button again to print single-sided pages.

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. Consider 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.
