New Printing Policies for Pius Library and Medical Center Library
While SLU’s printing demands are large, a necessary balance needs to be maintained between demand and environmental sustainability. SLU’s initiative to become a more economical and efficient campus has brought necessary changes that will result in less paper use and less waste on campus.
In response to SLU’s eco-friendly initiative, you will notice new printers in the Pius and Medical Center libraries and new printing policies.
Printers will now default to double-sided (duplex). While this policy will impact a majority of students, this will be the only significant change in the printing systems. To modify this on a per-print basis, change the preferences within the print menu to be 1-sided instead of 2-sided.
New costs for printing are as follows:
1-sided black and white printing – $0.10 per side
2-sided black and white printing – $0.08 per side
1-sided color printing – $0.20 per side
2-sided color printing – $0.15 per side
(Note: The blank sides of 1-sided print jobs are not charged)
To print, swipe your SLU ID or copy card at the printer or release station, then select your job on the screen and print it. After the job is printed, be sure to log out.
Thank you for helping SLU to preserve our environment.
