There are several ways you can reduce printing and get the most out of your printing allotment:

  • The key to saving paper is to not print your file unless it is necessary. If there is a way for you to view it online or on a portable computing device (laptop, smartphone, etc), you are encouraged to do so.
  • Make sure you print double-sided. Duplex printing is available in all Open-Access Computer Labs. Instructions are available on the Experts Wiki: Print on both sides of the page.
  • Print multiple PowerPoint slides on each page. Instructions are available on the Experts Wiki: Print multiple PowerPoint slides per page.
  • Many programs allow you to print multiple pages per sheet. This is normally used for review purposes. Instructions are available on the Experts Wiki: Print multiple pages per sheet.

If you attempt to print to a BearPrint printer and something goes wrong with the print job, you may be eligible for a refund of the amount charged for the print job. Not every instance will qualify for a refund, but please speak with a Help Desk student worker in any of the Open-Access Computer Labs about your print job and they will make a report to a Centralized User Support Specialist. Refund requests need to be made within 48 hours of when the print job occurred.
