Student dinner accounts can also be credited by cash using the Re-Val machine located in the main entrance. Students are issued with an ID which allows them to use the machine to credit cash to their account. Students also use this card to access external doors, photocopiers and the library system so they must keep their card safe as a replacement card costs £5.00. Lost cards should be reported to reception. For replacement cards, please contact reception.
