Notes About Printing

  • All ICERM printers support duplex (double-sided) printing.
  • The ICERM printers use US LETTER/LTR 8.5×11 sized paper. Please choose this paper size when installing a printer or printing a document.
  • If you use a VPN, you must disconnect from your VPN to access the printers.

If you have questions about these instructions or require further assistance, please contact the ICERM IT staff by dropping by the administrative offices or emailing
