Your Campus Card is more than just an identification card; it is your key to many services Columbia has to offer. By adding Columbia Cash to your Campus Card, you can purchase food and beverages from the college cafés, library coffee bar, and vending machines; pay for printing services in the library and open labs; and purchase snacks, books, and merchandise in the bookstore.
The Columbia Cash program with your Campus Card acts as a prepaid debit card which you can use to buy goods and services at many campus locations. Columbia Cash remains on your account as long as you are a registered Columbia student or employee of the college.
As the Campus Card program expands, so will the number of locations accepting Columbia Cash.
