Does the institution limit free printing for students in all computer labs and libraries?:
Yes

A brief description of how printing is limited:

Print on Demand practices are promoted across the campus-printing only what is needed. As an example, course readers are printed in limited quantities at the beginning of each quarter and stocked on Bookstore shelves. Rain checks are issued for all requests above the initial quantity and printed for next day pickup. Departmental multifunctional systems are all duplex capable with scan to email as a standard configuration to promote and assist in digitization of paper documents. Self-service printing in libraries and in service centers is all on a cost recovery basis; there is no wasteful "free" printing.

Several paper saving initiatives are listed on sustain.ucsd.edu in the How You Can Help Promote Sustainability section (http://sustainability.ucsd.edu/involve/promote-sustainability.html).
