Residential Programs and Services at Indiana University (IU) is equipping its residence halls with a new card reader system, expanding the university’s CampusAccess card program, according to the Indiana Daily Student.
CampusAccess is the official Indiana University ID. It provides students with access to a variety of campus services including on-campus residence halls, laundry, copy & print, vending, dining, meal plan, transit, sporting events, library privilege, and much more.
With the new card reader system, instead of swiping to enter, students will simply hold their CampusAccess card to a contactless smart card reader to unlock doors. The new card readers have been set up at the Rose Avenue and Eigenmann residence halls. The school rolled out Ingersoll-Rand/XCeedID’s aptiQ MiFare DESFire EV1 contactless cards and readers.
Also affecting students living on-campus, all first-year students will now automatically receive a $100 IBucks deposit on their CampusAccess account – $50 for the first semester and $50 for the second semester. This is billed to each student’s bursar account and accounted for as a meal plan increase.
