About duplex printing in the IUB and IUPUI STCs

The exact setting for printing double-sided sheets or two pages on one side of a sheet of paper (2-up) will vary depending on your printer. Check your software or browser help files for further instructions.

Note: When printing in Student Technology Centers at Indiana University Bloomington or IUPUI, duplex printing does not reduce the number of pages charged against your printing quota or Jagtag balance; see Why does duplex (two-sided) printing count as two pages on my printing allotment? Printing 2-up shrinks pages so that two fit on one side of the paper; this reduces the number of pages you actually print (as opposed to simply reducing the amount of paper you use), and therefore does reduce the charge against your printing allotment.

To reduce paper use and to minimize solid waste, duplex printing (i.e., two-sided output) in black and white is available in all UITS Student Technology Centers (STCs) at IUB and IUPUI, and in all Residential Technology Centers (RTCs) at IUB.

For specific STC locations at IUB and IUPUI, see At IU, what are the STCs (computing labs)?

Unlike single-sided (simplex) printing, in the STCs, you must select duplex printing each time you print. Some software applications (e.g., browsers) will automatically add an additional blank page to documents with an odd number of pages to keep unrelated print jobs from running together. The blank page will count against your printing allotment when you print in duplex. If you want to reduce the cost to your printing allotment, consider printing multiple page images on one side of each sheet of paper instead.

Note: To avoid unexpected charges on your bursar bill, check your IUB printing allotment or IUPUI printing allocation regularly.

Color printers are available in a number of STC and RTC locations at IUB; all are duplex-capable. For more, see In the IUB STCs and RTCs, where can I print in color, and what are the costs?

IUPUI does not currently support duplex printing on color printers. For a list of color printers at IUPUI, see At IUPUI, where can I print in color?
