As part of our commitment to students, Information Services (IS) provides
computer resources to all currently enrolled, fee-paying UMKC students.
These resources include but are not limited to:
Most labs also have a digital scanner. Please take a look below for information and support concerning our
student computing environment.
Many IS labs are open for student use at this time. Per UMKC and KCMO Policy, everyone must wear masks/face
coverings in the labs at all times. For more information, please visit the
UMKC Coronavirus page.
- Lab computers running Windows 10
- File storage space
- Adaptive equipment (for persons with visual disabilities or wheelchair access needs)
Lab equipment is wiped down at the beginning of each opening shift and deep cleaned regularly. We encourage
you to ask for a cleaning wipe to use on the lab keyboard and mouse you will be using before you begin. If
you need assistance from the Student Assistant, please make sure to maintain 6 feet of distance at all times.
When entering and exiting the labs, we recommend that you use the hand sanitizer units placed throughout the
buildings or wash your hands thoroughly.
To provide students with flexibility in meeting their printing needs, students receive their entire student
print quota of 850 black and white pages at the start of each semester. This will be displayed in the
PaperCut print management system as $42.50 for printing at $0.04 per duplex page and $.05 per single-sided
page. Note that the discounted rate of $.04 per side of duplex printing only applies to eligible pages.
If your document has a page that is blank on one side, it will use the regular amount of $.05 of print quota for
All printers in IS-managed labs default to duplex printing and you will need to manually select single-sided
printing if desired.
Students who enroll after the start of the semester will receive their print quota within 48 hours of enrollment.
Students can check their print quota usage in any of the IS student computer labs by using the "Details" link in
the PaperCut print management system. Students will continue to have the option to print beyond their print quotas
by simply adding funds to their RooBucks account.
Quotas will be refreshed each Spring, Summer, and Fall. Here is the upcoming print quota allotment schedule
