Vassar has a one-card identification card system. The V-Card lets you into your dorm; serves as your library card; laundry card; Meal Plan card, V-Cash account as well as your V-Print account. Each student will also get funds to spend each semester at participating Arlington restaurants.
First-year students receive their V-Card during New Student Orientation. It is their key to the residence house. It can also be used to purchase books and other items at the Vassar College Store via V-Cash.
The V-Card carries the meal plan account; a meal plan is required for every student. Specifics about the meal plan can be found at the Dining website.
V-Cash can be deposited either online, or by going to the Service Desk (located in College Center), and charged home to the student bill.
The V-Card carries V-Cash, also a prepaid account; this account is used for laundry machines in the dorms, the copiers and printers across campus (when your V-print quota runs out), vending machines, purchases at the Computer Store and Vassar College Store, 20 participating local off- campus businesses, as well as any eatery on campus.
The V-Card carries a V-Print account, credited once per semester with $32.50 (the equivalent of 650 prints) at no charge to you. If you exceed this limit you may use your V-Cash account for printing.
Funds for V-Cash may be purchased online using Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or charged to your student account by going in person to the Service Desk in College Center during the first month of each semester.
