QCards: Expanding options and opportunities

Your Queens College ID is no longer just a plastic passport that grants you legal entry to the library or the gym — it is now the equivalent of carrying your entire wallet.

Students can pay any overdue fines at the library by swiping their ID at the check out counter. Despite not having cash, students can still make purchases at campus vending machines by using their cards.

The QCard now holds the potential to be a debit card. Students can put as much money, or ‘QBucks’ on to their cards as they wish through one of the many QCard stations found around campus or at qc.cuny.edu/qcard and use it not only to purchase food anywhere on campus, but also at some off-campus sites as well. Jib Lanes bowling alley, located onParsons Boulevard, the Mobil gas station onKissena Boulevardand Gino’s Pizzeria all now accept pre-filled QCards as payment options.

These options continue to grow as the college’s office of communications and technology looks to expand its relationship with merchants around the campus vicinity.

Not only is the card a payment option, it is also a key card for residents of The Summit, the official QC ID and the only way to pay for printing and photo-copying on campus.

Students who filled out course evaluations at the end of last semester were awarded $15 on their QCard. This amount can only be used for printing and copying from any of the on-campus services and not for food or library fines. However, more QBucks added to the card can help pay for any additional printing costs as well as meals.

Do not confuse QBucks with the QMeals program however. If any students purchased the QMeals package, they are limited to spending the entirety of that sum at on-campus food locations only.

Future QCard options include paying for parking in the Student Union underground parking lot, and discounted movie tickets.

 

QCard station locations:

Dining Hall 116

Chartwells Dining Hall

Powdermaker Hall lobby

I Building

Student Union: coming soon
