Your OWU ID card may be used to unlock external doors to your residence hall and/or buildings that you have permission to enter. Contact the Card Office or Public Safety if you need access to a building or if your card isn't working where you think it should.

On-Campus Dining Card
The OWU ID card can be used to purchase food at any of the on-campus dining locations.
Students on a qualified meal plan have “Anytime Dining” access at Smith Hall (24 hr) or Marketplace in the Hamilton Williams Campus Center. Students on a premium plan (Gold or Platinum) receive a fixed amount of “Dining Dollars” which can be used for ala carte food and T-store purchases on campus. Premium Meal Plans also include a number of “Day Passes” to feed your guests at Smith or Marketplace for the entire day.
Faculty, staff and students exempt from a qualified meal plan can purchase “Meal Blocks” and “Dining Dollars” through the GET Mobile App or www.OWU.edu/get.
To purchase “Dining Dollars”, use the GET Funds link (“Deposit” in Mobile App).
To purchase “Meal Blocks” Use the GET Food link (“Order” in Mobile App).
Your OWU ID card is also your OWU library card, and can be used for borrowing materials. More information is on the OWU Library's website.
The OWU ID card can be used as a debit card in the Campus Store. A deposit to the account must be made before you may use the funds. Any deposit made is not available for cash withdrawal, but any remaining balance is returned when a student leaves the University. Student’s purchases are limited by the amount of funds in the account.
Debit deposits can be made with a credit card through the GET Mobile app or the GET website, with cash or by check at the Student Accounts Office in University Hall, or via check or money order through the mail. ACH deposits using a personal bank account and routing number can be completed online at owu.afford.com. Deposits through GET Mobile or the GET website are available immediately, all other deposits will be available for use the next business day. There are no cash withdrawals permitted from the account and the funds cannot be transferred or used to pay other student charges. Credits at the end of the year will automatically carry over to the next year. Remaining balances for graduating seniors and non-returning students will first be applied to the student’s account (tuition), if applicable, and any remaining balance will be refunded via check.
A deposit of $500 is recommended to cover textbook and miscellaneous needs for one semester; however, any amount may be deposited into the OWU debit account. Account balance can be viewed in the GET Mobile app or GET website. Inquiries about the OWU card can be directed to the OWU Card Office during normal business hours, located in the Corns Building or by calling 740-368-3451.
If you lose your OWU ID card, you must come into the Card Office to get a replacement. Students should report a lost card to the card office to have their funds protected. If you happen to find someone else's card, please return it to the Card Office during the week and/or Public Safety on weekends. Cards can be reported lost by going to the GET website or using the GET mobile app (see above).
Employee spouses and children may be issued an OWU ID card. The employee must accompany their relative to the IS Help Desk and present their current OWU ID. This ID card will then allow the family member to access OWU sporting events and athletic and fitness facilities. Spouses and/or parents of children will need to speak with the Athletics Department to sign any required release of liability to use the equipment there.
