How can I get the title 'Bibliography' to be centered on the page using biblatex.

I'm using the report class. And I'm required to only have bibliography centered, not other sections.

I've tried a few things, all to no avail:

   \printbibliography[tile={\centering Title}]


   \renewcommand{\bibname}{\centering Title}

I should note that last one I've used before to center Table of Contents and other sections, but doesn't work here for bibliography.

I've tried a bunch of other things, none work.

Is there a way to center only the bibliography heading?


One possibility is to use \defbibheading:




  \chapter*{\centering #1}%


\chapter{A chapter}

    Now, please consider adding a minimal working example (MWE)/minimal working example with bibliography (MWEB) to future questions. It not only spares those answering having to set up a working code for your problem, but it also supplies details you might not know are relevant. For example, for the above code I had to assume you are not using any \printbibliography options such as bibintoc, bibnumbered, subbibliography, subbibintoc etc. If any of those are used, the code would have to be adapted. – gusbrs Mar 2 '18 at 21:59
  • Thank, that works perfect. I will try to be sure to include MWE in the future. Thanks! – Nertskull Mar 2 '18 at 23:07
