Bear Bucks Accounts
Optional cashless system for purchasing select on-campus and off-campus services.
The Bear Bucks account is an optional cashless system for purchasing select on-campus and off-campus services. These include undergraduate residential laundry services, select vending machines, various printing services, and all dining locations. Bear Bucks may be used at several campus businesses including the Campus Store, Edison Theatre, Bear Necessities, Wash-U-Wash, and a variety of student group events and activities. Select businesses off campus also accept Bear Bucks. Bear Bucks is accessed through your Washington University ID card, the same card that you will use for identification, building access, and your meal plan! 98% of all undergraduate students have a Bear Bucks account. Students can initially purchase Bear Bucks on the housing application and manage their Bear Bucks account through WebSTAC. Funds remain available until you leave the university. Up to $1,000 may be billed to a student account through WebSTAC each semester. Additional funds may also be added to the account with a credit or debit card via Guest Deposit.
