If you are resident in a catered hall, a weekly cash value will automatically be placed on the Unicard for 35 weeks of a 40 week contract.
Study Abroad students on a semester programme have the cash value for every week of their programme except the vacation periods.
You must show your Unicard for every transaction, otherwise a charge will be made for the purchase. Unicards are not transferable. It is your responsibility to use the full monetary value on the card each week; no monetary value can be carried forward from week to week.
Please refer to the A to Z of Living in Halls for further information.
Students who wish to remain on campus during the vacation periods can either make cash purchases or top up their Unicard via UPay at the following link: www.upay.co.uk/. Please refer to the instructions given on our Upay page.
