Campus Card

Load your card

Save time and money

Your Campus Card is convenient and easy to use. By adding money to your card you can print on campus or buy coffee for a friend. Preloaded cards work on a declining balance, like a campus debit card, and the best part, there are no retail transaction fees. It's a great tool to use for budgeting - even your family members can load your card.

Two accounts for added value

Your Campus Card has two accounts; Cascade Cash and a Meal Plan.

1. Cascade Cash

  • Cascade Cash is flexible and easy to use. 
  • Money in the account carries over from one semester to the next.
  • Cascade Cash can be topped up at any time.
  • Students use Cascade Cash to print and photocopy, purchase food, or to buy supplies and textbooks.
  • Housing students use Cascade Cash for laundry - clean clothes smell nice! 
  • Taxes apply on all retail purchases.

To load Cascade Cash on your card visit the:

  • Campus Card office, S1101, and use debit, credit, or cash.
  • Abbotsford or Chilliwack Bookstore and use debit, credit, or cash.
  • Library PHIL Stations accept cash only: $5's, $10's, or $20's. No change is given. 

Family members can add Cascade Cash by calling the card office at 1-888-504-7441 ext. 4176. To process a payment over the phone, have the student's assigned 9 digit UFV ID number ready, along with your credit card.

2. Meal Plan

  • Meal plans are available through housing for students who live on campus.
  • Parents and students can choose from a selection of meal plans that best meet individual needs.
  • Each time a meal plan is used on campus you save the 5% GST.
  • Meal plans are valid for a specific time only. 

To load a meal plan on to your card: 

  • Visit housing for meal plan options and more information.

The fine print is listed here under terms and conditions. The university recognizes that students are adults and are responsible for their own finances. Please note: the Campus Card office only provides transactional information to the cardholder. The cardholder is required to present their Campus Card upon request.
