Why Use Your Wiscard Campus Accounts?
It's easier to manage than a checkbook and easier to budget with than cash. To use your Wiscard Campus Account, simply present your UW ID to the cashier. The amount of purchase is automatically deducted. Keeping track of your balance is easy, too. Your receipt shows you how much money you have left in your account or manage your account online to check your balance and transaction history.
Beyond the initial deposit, you decide how much money to keep in your account. Wiscard can be a primary meal account or used just to cover lunches, snacks and occasional purchases while you're on campus.
Safer than cash
With Wiscard there is no money stored on your ID card. If you lose your card, you can deactivate it immediately. For information on how deactivate your Wiscard click here.
Saves you money
Enrolled UW students save 5.5% on food purchased at restaurants or delis with any of the three Wiscard accounts. In addition, the Union Meal account offers all participants (even faculty and staff) an additional 5% discount. This equals a total savings of 10.5% for students!
