The Campus Card is the official Cheyney University picture identification card. It also serves as your “key” to the campus — an all-in-one meal card, building access card, library card and bookstore ID. All Cheyney University ID cards are issued by the Office of Information Technology.
At various locations throughout campus, card readers have been installed to allow your access to while ensuring security. Access privileges are based on job duties, residency, athletic programs, student organizations and services. All campus housing is secured with card access control. Any changes to your access privileges are automatically updated to your Campus Card, and access will discontinue upon inactive status or separation from the University.
Your card allows you to check out books and materials at the Leslie Pinckney Hill Library.
A meal plan is a prepaid account for on-campus meals. A variety of plan options offer a set amount of meals per day throughout the term. In addition, meal plans include extra funds, called Dining Dollars, which can be spent on snacks or other meals. All unused Dining Dollars will expire at the close of each semester.
A Wolf Bucks spending account is a prepaid debit account. Funds added to a Wolf Bucks account may be used for purchases at any time and as often as desired. Unused funds are carried forward on a year to year basis.
Please note that no cash withdrawals can be made from the card and no transactions will be processed once the balance is depleted. No funds may be transferred from Wolf Bucks to Dining Dollars or vice versa.
The Campus Card is the official identification card of Cheyney University. It is issued exclusively to members of the University and is required for identification and access to essential campus services.
