Campus Card Top Up
Save time and money with the Campus Card. Get discounts across most items and never wait in line at the cashpoint again.
The University has a range of restaurants and cafes across our campuses. If you load cash onto your Campus Card, you can get 15% discount on hot drinks and 5% discount on all other products.
How do I pay for meals?
Once your card is loaded up, paying for goods is as easy as swiping it at the checkouts across campus. Your card can be used in all Eat locations as well as Dol.cHe Vita, Index Café and Café Libro. It can also be used to pay for other university services, see Campus Card website for details.
Why is it better than paying by cash?
Paying by Campus Card isn't just convenient for you, it's convenient for us too. That means we can give you a discount on all of our products, to reflect the fact that you're saving us time and effort too. No cash, no fuss.
