Apply for your KPU Card Online
To get your KPU Card:
Please adhere to KPU's COVID-19 policies, such as mask wearing and physical distancing, while in our spaces.
The purpose of a KPU Card is for identification, borrowing physical items from the library’s collections (like books or a student laptop), and tap access for printing and photocopying. If you have a U-Pass, you are advised here to have a student card as proof of student ID. Some instructors require student ID during exams, so be sure to ask your instructor ahead of time. But plan ahead: the process can take days.
The submission process to apply for your KPU Card is online. Once you receive confirmation that your KPU Card is ready, you will have to pick up your card from one of our library locations. We cannot mail you your card, nor can we issue an e-version. The process is the same for both students and employees.
If you are a new student, you can apply for your KPU Card one month before your class start date.
KPU employees, you may need to arrange for a short term visit to campus during your appointment time, as outlined in the July 14 KPU COVID-19 response statement.
Please read this important information about KPU's Personal Information Collection Guidelines.
While the library processes KPU Cards as soon as we can, this process takes time, so please plan ahead! We thank you for your patience.
During this suspension of most library public services, the only way to add money to your PaperCut account (to pay for printing or copying) is online.
You must be on campus to do this and payment is by credit card only. Temporary credit cards such as Visa gift cards are permitted, although you may need to register the card before using it.
For prices and print/copy/scan instructions go to libguides.kpu.ca/new/PrintScanCopy
The Library is unable to issue or renew Community Borrower cards or extend Community Borrower privileges at this time.
Once the Library resumes full in-person services please visit us at any campus library and we will be happy to set up a new Community Borrower account or renew your existing Community Borrower card.
