Students of Peking University have discovered a way to make a few quick bucks, by renting out their college meal cards to non-students who seek cheaper meals at on-campus establishments, reveals the Global Times.
One student claimed he could produce up to 10 campus meal cards, which are good for a year, and rent each of them for roughly $3.00 a month. He also added that the “no one will check if you are a student when you are using the card.”
Compared to other restaurants and establishments, the on-campus ones provide meals at discounted prices for those who possess a campus meal card.
The campus previously allowed non-students to dine at on-campus establishments, but due to an increased volume of non-students looking for cheaper meals the campus has stopped allowing those without meal cards to dine.
“We know the situation and have seized some cards,” says the director from the Peking University meal center.
