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:

  • Lab computers running Windows 10
  • File storage space
  • Adaptive equipment (for persons with visual disabilities or wheelchair access needs)

Most labs also have a digital scanner. Please take a look below for information and support concerning our student computing environment.

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 that page. 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 (subject to change):
  • Spring 2020: December 19, 2019
  • Summer 2020: May 22, 2020
  • Fall 2020: August 21, 2020
  • Spring 2021: December 21, 2020
