Husky Bucks FAQ

What are Husky Bucks?

Husky Bucks is a debit account-like program already set up on your Husky One Card. It is used to make purchases at various locations on and off campus. Note: Copying and printing services at the Homer Babbidge Library and the Fine Arts Library only take Husky Bucks. There are no coin machines.

For a complete listing of places that accept Husky Bucks, visit our Husky Bucks Locations page. You can make a Husky Bucks deposit, by visiting our Deposits page.

Are points the same as Husky Bucks?

Points are not the same as Husky Bucks! There are two resident meal plans that come with a set number of meal plan points each semester. Points can only be spent at UConn Dining Services-operated food locations. That means you cannot use Points to buy food at Dunkin Donuts and Panda Express in the Student Union because these restaurants are not run by Dining Services. Points that are not used at the close of each semester expire. Husky Bucks is like a debit account. Once you deposit money into your Husky Bucks account, it remains on your account until you spend the funds or separate from the University. Husky Bucks are widely accepted as a form of payment on campus and off-campus, too! To see all the campus departments and local merchants that participate in the Husky Bucks program, visit our Husky Bucks Locations page.

As a parent, can I get information about my son or daughter’s Husky Bucks account?

Yes, depending on the authorization your son or daughter has given. There are two ways of obtaining information about your son or daughter’s Husky Bucks account: (1) Call the One Card Office or (2) Utilize the Guest Account option.

Call the One Card Office: Our office follows the FERPA policies established by the University regarding student privacy rights. If your son or daughter has completed the on-line FERPA waiver found in the PeopleSoft Student Administration System, and has listed you as someone we can discuss the Husky Bucks account with, we will ask you for your access code. Once you provide the code, we can discuss the Husky Bucks Account activity with you. For an explanation of the FERPA waiver, click http://ferpa.uconn.edu/.

Guest Account: A student can give family and friends various access levels to their Husky One Card account.
