I am writing my thesis in LaTex and I am strictly required to write:

  1. With Times New Roman
  2. 12 pt (which I have read 12pt in Word is different from 12pt in LaTex)
  3. One and a half line spacing
  4. All the four margins (left, right, up and down) need to be of 2.5 cm

Can you help me with these four commands to add to my thesis?

  • At my university, they had their own .sty file that I had to use. Does that exist for your university? – Durkee Jun 11 at 18:55

With Times New Roman

With xelatex or lualatex you can use any .ttf or .otf font available in your system, and of course times. For pdflatex or any other compiler there are also an obsolete times package, that should be replaced by the math­ptmx pack­age, which sup­ports Times Ro­man text.

12 pt (which I have read 12pt in Word is different from 12pt in LaTex)

Hardly anyone will notice this, but this is a duplicate of Setting a document in MS Word-12pt (12bp)

One and a half line spacing

... that is also different of Word spacing, but this is also a duplicate of Double or one-half spacing

All the four margins (left, right, up and down) need to be of 2.5 cm

Easy way:

\usepackage[margin=2.5cm]{geometry}

    These days I think newtxtext/newtxmath are the replacement for mathptmx. – Alan Munn Jun 11 at 21:34
