There are a variety of different accounts into which money can be added onto your Campus Card and for information on which account is best for you, visit our plans page.

Online Deposit System

Students, parents, staff and faculty alike can add funds to a Campus Card using our Online Deposit System! The deposit system is available 24/7 and accepts MasterCard, VISA and debit from most major Canadian banks as payment methods and transactions typically take five minutes to process. Use your Airmile or Aeroplan enabled credit card and collect miles when depositing!

*A full listing of accepted Interac financial institutions can be found at the Interac website.

Full Service On Campus Deposit Locations

There are currently 3 offices on campus where you can add funds to your Campus Card:

  • Campus Card Office, 407 University Centre
  • Residence Commons Desk, Commons Building
  • The Print Shop, 102 Robertson Hall

Simply bring your card and payment (cash, debit, credit or cheque), and they will add the funds to your card! Cheques are to be made out to Carleton University.

Self Service On Campus Deposit Locations

Cash2Card machines allow you to deposit cash onto your Campus Card, even when our full service locations are closed. Simply swipe your Campus Card, deposit your funds into the machine ($1 and $2 coins are accepted, as are $5, $10 and $20 bills) and the funds are added to the card.

These machines also sell guest cards (cost $1), in case you forget your Campus Card at home.

Currently we have four Cash2Card machines:

  • MacOdrum Library,
    • 2nd floor near the photocopiers and Laser Printers
    • 4th floor near the photocopiers and Laser Printers
  • Residence Commons, 2nd floor near the Residence Desk
  • University Centre, 4th floor near the Campus Card Office

The Cash2Card machines accept Canadian coins and bills only, so if you want to add funds from your debit or credit card, please use our online deposit system.

Payroll Deduction

Do you work at Carleton? If so, you can take advantage of our payroll deduction system! Each pay period, an amount you set will be deducted from your paycheque and automatically deposited onto your Campus Card, saving you from having to manually deposit funds. You can change or cancel the amount transferred at any time.

To use the system, log in to Carleton Central and click on “CampusCard-Payroll Deduction-Deposit system”, found under Employee Services.
