Why didn't my card work in the vending machine?

To use your UB Card to purchase from a vending machine you need to have a Dining Points or Campus Cash account active on your card. All cards start with accounts, you simply have to add value to them. You can do this at the UB Card Office or on this website.  If the reader is not recognizing your card, it may have a scratched or worn stripe.  Stop by the UB Card Office to have it checked out.  You may need to have your card replaced.  Some replacements have a small fee and some are at no charge.
