Residents in the Suites at Academy Square or any other non-cooking room are required to purchase a meal plan as part of their housing contract. The student’s ID card works like a debit card to purchase food and tracks the remaining balance.
$795 - Badger Bucks used for meals and bookstore
$200 declining balance Badger Bucks*
Badger Bucks funds will roll over to the next semester and/or may be refundable. Please see the Badger Bucks page for specifics.
Badger Bucks turns your College issued ID card into a debit card. Students, parents, and friends may add funds to the Badger Bucks account allowing students to make purchases at the Badger Den and College Bookstore located in the Greenwood Student Center cafeteria and copy machines and Buster’s Bistro located in the Huntsman Library.
Residents selecting Plan B, will have Badger Bucks immediately on their card to be used to purchase books or other items at the start of the semester even though they may be paying for it via payment plan over the course of the semester. This is a great option for students waiting on Federal Financial Aid funding.
