University of Notre Dame goes cashless on campus beginning August 1
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame will transition into a cashless retail campus starting August 1.
Cash can no longer be used at Notre Dame food service spots, dining halls, concession stands, or at St. Michael's Laundry.
The change also applies to dining services at Holy Cross College and Saint Mary's College where the University manages operations.
If you do not have a credit or debit card, kiosks in Duncan and LaFortune Student Centers will transfer cash onto a Visa gift card.
Those gift cards can be used wherever Visa is accepted, on or off campus, at no extra charge.
“I am excited for this move to a cashless campus as transactions will be faster, saving time for both visitors and staff alike,” Rich Bellis, associate vice president for finance and treasury services, said. “Going cashless will eliminate security risks associated with transporting cash and will reduce end-of-day reconciliation for our employees. I am grateful to our team and campus partners for working together to implement this transition where possible.”
Cash will still be accepted at the following locations:
- Morris Inn
- Hammes Notre Dame Bookstores
- Notre Dame Wellness Center
- U.S. Post Office
- Vending machines and privately-owned businesses in LaFortune Student Center
Cash donations will be accepted at the Grotto and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
Cash can also be used in fundraisers/donations and residence halls food sales.
Faculty, staff, and students can still add funds to Irish1Cards.
ATMs will be available in the two student centers.
