Printing in the Library


Logging on to the computers
Your log on to the computers is the same log on you would use to access your MyHCC (Canvas) classes.
If you do not have an online course, you must activate your log on at NetID.

  • Your username: first initial of first name, last name and any number assigned by the system.  i.e. John Smith = jsmith27
    (You can retrieve your user name at NetID if necessary.)
  • Your default password:  first initial of first name CAPITALIZED, first initial of last name (lowercase) followed by your 7-digit student number, i.e. Jsmith1234567


  1. Use your HawkCard to sign on to the printer/copier. Your print jobs will be available at any of the printer/copiers.
  2. Swipe your HawkCard with card reader on the printer/copier.
  3. The first time you do this you will have to touch the screen and register your HawkCard. You will use the same information you used to log on to the computers (i.e. your NetID).
  4. Your account will be credited $2.50 a day for printing (for free).  Copies/prints are .8 each (B&W) and .35 (color).
