Hill Card Campus Debit Card
Your Hill Card can be used as a campus prepaid debit card. It is the convenient, cashless way to pay for purchases on campus.
Two prepaid account options are available - All Campus Account (good at all locations where the Hill Card is accepted - Barnes & Noble, Bon Appetit, Cafe Opus, Euphoria) or College Store Account (good for purchases at the College Bookstore only.)
Your Hill Card campus debit card account can be accessed online to deactivate your card when lost, reactivate it when found, add money to your account and view account history. Family members can also add money to your account online.
Your Hill Card is a proximity card that provides access to the exterior doors of residence halls and other card-access buildings on campus. This system makes exterior residence hall keys obsolete. Please do not punch a hole in your card or you may disable the proximity chip and antenna.
All residence hall washers and dryers accept the Hill Card only (you must have funds deposited in your Hill Card account). If you do not have money deposited on your Hill Card, you can do laundry at Bristol Center, which also offers coin-operated laundry equipment.
Most campus vending machines will accept the Hill Card.
You no longer need cash to buy Top Up cards at the Circulation desk in the Library to add credit to your PaperCut account. You have two options.
- You can manually transfer $1, $2 or $5 to your PaperCut quota directly from your Hill Card account. Service is available by going to PaperCut account details webpage and selecting “Add credit from Hill Card” link.
- Alternatively, if you do not have enough print credit for your print job, PaperCut will automatically transfer the amount necessary to cover the cost of your print job from your Hill Card account.
You must have funds available on your Hill Card account to transfer funds to PaperCut. The transfer of credit takes place in real time. Money cannot be transferred from your PaperCut account to your Hill Card account.
- PaperCut quotas are reset at the beginning of each semester.
- Any remaining balances in PaperCut accounts are zeroed out.
- DO NOT add more credit than needed to get through each semester or you will lose those funds at the end of the semester.
