This initiative broadens the use of the current Trinity staff and student ID card to include a cashless payment facility across the campus. Among the TCard’s many advantages are not having to use cash for purchases, faster transactions at the point of sale outlets leading to fewer queues, and various discounts and incentives from TCard retailers. In addition, parents and guardians can top up student TCards online.

All profits generated through the sale of items purchased on the TCard will go back into the College to support the University’s academic mission of teaching and research, so the College community will benefit too.

TCard is currently accepted in all catering outlets, Student’s Union Shop, Day Nursery, Sports centre and Academic Registry with more areas due to be included early next year.
