The OWL CARD has many uses:
|Identification:||On the front of the card there is a digitized photograph and signature of the bearer.|
|Library Card:||The bar code, and numbers below it, are the user's library number. Please note that if you are entering your library number on line you should not enter the "A" preceding or following the number. For additional information, visit the OWL CARD Use in the Library site.|
|BankAtlantic:||Your OWL CARD can also be activated to function as a BankAtlantic ATM card. In order to do this, you will need to open a BankAtlantic account. BankAtlantic is located in the Student Services Building West, across from the Breezeway Food Court.|
|Debit Card:||You can put up to $100.00 on the off-line account of OWL CARD to use for on-campus purchases. The OWL CARD is an accepted mean of payment at Campus Copy, Computer Lab print stations, washers and dryers in the residence halls and student apartments, select snack / beverage vending machines and select copy machines. This money is encoded directly on the card so if the card is lost or stolen your remaining balance can not be returned.|
|Meal Plan:||You can purchase a meal plan from Dining Services. Your OWL CARD will then serve as your meal card to pay for purchases at FAU's Dining facilities.|
|Owl Bucks:||You may also put money into the on-line "OWL Bucks" account of your OWL CARD. This debit 'Meal' account may then be used to pay for purchases at any of the dining venues on campus including the Breezeway Food Court, Einstein Bros Bagels, Coyote Jack's, Starbucks, Quiznos, Centre Market Place, Outtakes Convenient Store, FAU Bookstore, Student Health and the Campus Pharmacy.|
