Campus Cash


What is Campus Cash?

  • Campus Cash is a taxable debit account
  • Campus Cash is used for books, toiletries, parking, gifts and food through a variety of businesses listed below.

Campus Cash is the easiest way to make purchases at UB because it's accepted by the best places on campus and many businesses off campus, too. Purchases made with Campus Cash are taxable. You can even use Campus Cash to buy Dining Dollars – and using Dining Dollars will save you money on your meal purchases because you don't have to pay tax.

There’s only one way to spend your Campus Cash – by using your official University ID, the UB Card.

Campus Cash is separate from the Dining Dollars portion of your meal plan. The amount you spend is deducted from your balance and your remaining balance is displayed at the register after your purchase, so you always know how much Campus Cash you have left. It's easy. It's convenient. And there's no credit card risk!

How do I get Campus Cash?

Campus Cash is available to everyone on campus whether you have a Dining Plan or not. If you live in the residence halls, your Campus Cash will be accepted for payment in Dining Service operations only if you have a current Dining Plan. If you live off campus, your Campus Cash is accepted in Dining Services operations.


Open or Manage Your Account.

Your Campus Cash account remains active until you notify us, in writing, of your official withdrawal from the University. Campus Cash may only be spent at selected locations and cannot be converted to cash for purchases outside of the merchants listed below, and it may not be used to purchase tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, gift cards or lottery tickets. All Campus Cash purchases are subject to New York State sales tax and University rules and regulations. All guidelines for the Campus Cash program can be found in the Dining Contract, which you can find on the Forms and Documents Page. If you have more questions about Campus Cash (or about your UB Card or eating on campus), please contact us.
