You must have a Kapiʻolani CC (KCC) Student ID card or a KCC print card to print from computers in the library.

  • Cash can be loaded onto your KCC student ID or print card by using one of our print card machines.

How would you like to print?

Print from a Library PC

Follow the steps below or ask for help at the library Reference Desk. Please give yourself enough time. Please do not wait to start printing 5 minutes before class starts or the library closes.

  1. Display the document you want to print on the computer.
  2. SAVE your document to your Google Drive, flash drive, or email it to yourself as an attachment. If you do not save your document and something happens to the printer, your document is lost.
  3. Use File➞Print Preview to check the number of pages. Often there is blank space at the end of a document that creates an extra page. The Library does not give refunds if you print blank pages.
  4. Print the document. If you are printing a PDF file from a web browser, click on the printer icon in the PDF toolbar. Do not use your browser's File➞Print command for PDFs.
  5. Make sure you have the correct printer selected: BW Print ($0.10 cents per page) or Color Print ($0.50 per page). The Library does not give refunds if you choose the wrong printer.
  6. You will be prompted to enter your UH Username to protect your job from being printed by somebody else.

  13. Retrieve your printout (multi-page PDFs with large images may take several minutes).
