Duplex printing default in ILS student computing labs:

All capable mono printers in the ILS student computing labs print duplex (double sided) by default. This means a 40% reduction in the amount of paper used in those printers.

Please Note: The charge for two sides of double sided A4 printing on a single sheet has been reduced from 10 pence to 9 pence.
