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

  • UMKC students, staff, and faculty 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, 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 through Friday 8am - 5pm, or by email at
  • Print from a library computer or use Web Print to print from any device. Web Print requires you to connect through VPN if you are off campus.
  • Visit the UMKC Computer Lab Printing page for more information.
