As a TU student, it’s essential that you carry a OneCard,
the official university identification card. You should not wait until the
start of classes to obtain your OneCard because you’ll need it to gain
entrance to all residence halls and to access meals through your dining
plan. You can get your OneCard by visiting the Auxiliary Services Business
Office, University Union 110. Be sure to bring a photo ID (driver’s license,
passport or state-issued ID) with you.
You can use your OneCard to dine on or off campus (if you
have a meal plan or dining/retail points), borrow books from the library,
and gain door access to computer and photo labs and all residence
facilities. You will also enjoy free or reduced-price admission to sporting
and cultural events.
There are two OneCard spending accounts that permit you to
make purchases on campus:
The OneCard Dining Points Account
can be used for cashless
purchases of food at all campus dining locations.
The Retail/Vending Points Account
is used at the University Store for cashless purchases
of textbooks, class supplies, clothing, gift items, recreational reading
materials, snack items and toiletries. All washers and dryers in the
university’s residence facilities accept OneCard Retail/Vending Points. At
the Dowell Health Center, Retail/Vending Points can be used to pay for lab
tests, shots or prescriptions. At CopiesPlus they can be used to pay for
copies. You can also use your OneCard Retail Points at numerous off-campus
Deposits to both accounts can be made anytime online at the
OneCard website, http://onecard.towson.edu, or in person at the Auxiliary
Services Business Office, University Union 110.
Online Account Management
allows you to check your account balances 24 hours a day. Best of all, with your permission, your family members can log in to
your account and make deposits directly using a credit card. Sign up for
online account management as soon as you receive your OneCard. For more
information or questions about OneCard accounts, visit
Your OneCard account money is safe at Towson! Your unused
balances in both your Dining Points and Retail/Vending Points accounts roll
over from one term to the next—from one year to another. You will just need
to be sure to use all of your Dining Points prior to leaving the university.
