Help Make CSUN More Sustainable
Print Less Paper, Go Green!
Do your part to help make CSUN sustainable by printing your documents two-sided. To align with the campus-wide sustainability efforts, the Computer Lab at the USU is implementing two-sided printing with the default setting of “duplex mode” on all of its printers.
Note: One (1) two-sided page will count as two (2) pages towards your allocation of twenty (20) pages of free printing per day
If it is a class requirement to print one-sided, you can switch back to single-sided printing as follows:
- Click File -> Print
- Click Printer Properties
- Select the Finishing tab on the Printer Properties window
- Uncheck Print on Both Sides
- Click OK
- Click Print
We appreciate your assistance in moving CSUN to a new standard of sustainability.
