Printing in the Libraries

Information on how to print in the libraries, tips for printing green, print troubleshooting, and how to add money to your campus account.

The Basics

  • Students receive a $42.50 quota for printing each semester. When you print at UMKC Libraries, the cost is deducted from your print quota.
  • When you run out of quota, add funds to your Roo Bucks account. If this is your first time adding Roo Bucks to your card, please contact the One Card Office to have Roo Bucks activated before making a deposit. The One Card Office can be reached at (816) 235-6657 during normal business hours, Monday thru Friday 8-5, or by email at
  • Print from a library computer or use Web Print to print from any device.
  • Use Web Print off campus by connecting to the campus Virtual Private Network (VPN) first.
  • Check out the Student Computing Labs FAQ page for more information.
  • Guest printing is not allowed at this time.
