Each PC on the campus will have two printer queues, one for black & white printing and another for colour printing. 
Printing depends on the application you are printing from, but you will typically be presented with a printing details window, requesting such details as:
- Which printer you wish to print to. (here you can choose the desired printer queue according to whether the printing job is needed to be in black & white or colour). 
- The number of copies.
- What pages of the document to print etc.
By default your print job will be sent to the print single sided, but this can be changed to double sided in the printer properties if required
It’s important to note there are both Colour and Black and White MFP Devices in the campus. If colour printing is required, make sure to release your print job from a Colour MFP Device.
