Student Billing and Payment
Campus Card
  • The Seattle University Campus Card is a versatile student photo ID card. It serves as a library card, electronic door key, elevator key, dining card and campus debit account card. It eliminates the need to carry multiple keys or cash while on campus and provides access to university centers, activities, elections and athletic events.

    Once registered as a matriculated student, the student receives a Campus Card in person at the Campus Card Office that is located in the Engineering Building, Room 309. To receive the Campus Card, students must present a valid driver's license, state ID or a passport and their SU student ID number. The Campus Card is valid throughout a student's entire Seattle University career.


    Debit Account

    The Campus Card has two accounts. The debit (or miscellaneous) account allows the student, to the extent that funds are available in this account on the  card, to pay for the following at various locations on campus:

    • Books and supplies from the Seattle University Bookstore,
    • Parking permits and bus passes,
    • Activities and club tickets at the Campus Assistance Center (CAC),
    • Leisure activity classes and equipment at the Connolly Center
    • Copying, stamps and postage for packages at Reprographics,
    • Vending machine snacks and beverages, and
    • Laundry

    Food Account

    The food account permits students to purchase, to the extent that funds are available in this account on the card, food in various campus locations: the Cherry Street Market, the Hawk's Nest Bistro, the Bottom Line, the Sidebar and the Byte.

    Loss of Campus Card

    Daytime loss of a student's Campus should be reported immediately to the Campus Card Office.

    After business hours, the loss should be reported to the Public Safety Office, where a temporary card will be provided.  Public Safety is located on the first floor in the University Services Building and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On the next weekday, contact the Campus Card Office to report the loss and receive a replacement card.

    There is a $15 fee for replacement cards.

    The Campus Card Office is located in Room 309 of the Engineering Building and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

    Adding Funds to the Campus Card

    When students sign up for a meal plan, the cost for the plan is added to and paid for through their quarterly Registration and Payment Invoice from Student Financial Services and the dollar value of the chosen plan is available on the card.

    Beyond that, funds are added to either account on a student's Campus Card using eAccounts, a convenient, web-based and secure method for managing "stored value" accounts using major credit cards.

    eAccounts, which is available 24 hours a day from almost any internet connected device with a browser, provides multiple ways to view transactions and track both meal plan and Campus Card account balances.  Further, eAccounts allows a student to disable a Campus Card that has been lost or stolen.  And finally, eAccounts allows students to give third parties (parents, spouses, etc.) the ability to add money into meal plans and Campus Card accounts. 

    The first time a student connects to eAccounts, they register as a new user.  Once a profile has been created, the system asks for the student's SU ID number (available at SUOnline).  After the student has registered, they use the username and password they entered to be able to access eAccounts in the future.  More information is available on the "Campus Card" section of the OIT website.

    The SU Help Desk is available at (206) 296-5571 or via email at to help with questions about eAccounts.
