Duck Bucks

The University of Oregon utilizes the UO ID card in a debit card program called Duck Bucks (previously called Campus Cash). This program is intended to add flexibility and convenience for purchases at multiple locations across campus.

The amount of your purchase is automatically deducted from your Duck Bucks account, and the remaining balance on your account will be displayed.

You can deposit money into your Duck Bucks account at any time during the year. The funds in your account automatically carry over from one term to the next and from year to year.

UO faculty and staff can make deposits to their Duck Bucks account through a monthly payroll deduction. Duck Bucks payroll deductions are deposited onto Duck Bucks accounts within the first three business days of each month.

Faculty and staff may use the online payroll deduction form to start, change, or stop payroll deductions for Duck Bucks. For questions about payroll deductions, call Cathy McDermond at 541-346-3148. For questions about Duck Bucks or the online form, call the ID Card Services office at 541-346-3113.

We also offer Duck Bucks cards for guests on campus and gifts to others.

There is a $1 annual fee for utilizing Duck Bucks (campus cash). This fee will be automatically deducted from your Duck Bucks.
