CMU Printing Instructions 

Upload documents and print from any CMU Printing location in the Library.

In an effort to combat paper waste across campus, the Student Government Association has requested
that all PrintQ printers default to 2-sided printing. This impacts PrintQ printing within the CMU Libraries.
