The Hill Card is an NFC chip card that provides access to the exterior doors of residence halls without having to slide the card through a reader. This system makes exterior residence hall keys obsolete. Students also have after-hours access to some other buildings on campus with card access.
The HC All-Campus Account is a prepaid, stored-value account that is part of the Hill Card. It is a convenient, cashless way to pay for purchases on campus.
Two prepaid options are available — HC All Campus Account (good at all locations where the Hill Card is accepted) or College Store Account (good for purchases at the College Bookstore only).
See Hill Card terms and conditions for additional information.
All residence hall washers and dryers accept the Hill Card only.
Campus vending machines will accept the Hill Card. Snack or beverage machine repairs/refunds can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org, 315-859-4271 or 315-859-4974, or call the service number listed on the machines.
Public copiers (located in Burke Library and Kirner-Johnson) will accept the Hill Card. To use the public copiers on campus, the student must have funds in their Hill Card account.
Mail Center & Print Shop
The Hill Card can be used for personal purchases at both locations.
Online Account Management
Your student’s Hill Card account can be accessed online. This access enables the cardholder to freeze or unfreeze a lost or stolen card. Add funds to their Hill Card debit account, and view their meal plan and vending transaction account history.
