Howard University has launched an all-in-one campus card combining the functions of a meal card, ATM card and laundry card into one, according to a campus news article.
The new Bison One card enables students to use their campus ID cards to make purchases at campus diners, vending machines, laundry machines, the campus bookstore, and certain off-campus retail and dining establishments.
The online system also allows students to view transaction history, add a credit card, make a deposit and print balances and account statements. Parents and/or students can add funds, or Bison Bucks, online using any of their credit cards. Online students may also report a lost or stolen card online which will immediately deactivate the account.
HU also plans to use Bison One card as a method of payment for parking on campus, copy & print. Sporting event tickets and more restaurants are also being implemented.
