Huskie Bucks

A "Huskie Bucks Account" is a pre-paid debit account that students, faculty, and staff may open with the university to use for various services such as laundry, copying/printing, and food purchases at designated locations on and off of the DeKalb NIU Campus (see below). This account is accessed with the OneCard ID. Huskie Bucks is a must-have for students living in the residence halls. The Huskie Bucks program facilitates life on campus by freeing students and employees from carrying cash, speeding checkout lines, and helping parents provide flexible food spending for their students.
