[Tex/LaTex] Blank page appears before title page

setspacetitles

I am writing my thesis paper in LaTeX. I wrote the title page like below. But whenever I compile the .tex file one extra blank page is added before the title page. I can't figure out why is it happening. Any help?

Best Answer

Another possible solution, with setspace and geometry packages.

A wild jumping from one \baselinestretch to another one is confusing, as well as the redefinition of that length is strongly discouraged. The titlepage was too large, therefore shipped out on the 2nd page, leaving the 1st one empty.
