In an effort to maintain a healthy and more efficient campus, the University of Notre Dame will transition to a cashless retail environment beginning Aug. 1. The change includes transactions at Notre Dame food service locations, dining halls, concession stands and St. Michael’s Laundry, as well as dining services at Saint Mary’s College and Holy Cross College where the University manages operations.
For individuals who do not have a credit or debit card, kiosks have been installed in Duncan and LaFortune Student Centers where cash can be transferred to a Visa gift card to complete transactions on campus. The gift cards can be used anywhere Visa is accepted on or off campus at no additional charge.
Cash will still be accepted at the following locations: the Morris Inn, Rohr’s, the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstores, the Notre Dame Wellness Center, the U.S. Post Office, vending machines and privately operated businesses in LaFortune such as FedEx, the hair salon, barber shop, floral shop and 1st Source Bank. Cash donations will still be accepted at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart and the Grotto, along with fundraising/donation events and residence halls food sales.
Faculty, staff and students can continue to add funds to Irish1Cards for use in the dining halls.
The change to a cashless environment will also affect the number of automatic teller machines (ATMs) on campus. ATMs will continue to be available in the two student centers.
