BeaconCard Account Management


The BeaconCard is your UMass Boston ID card and more. Your card will give you free student membership to the Beacon Fitness Center, free admission to the JFK Museum Library, discounted passes and tickets to movies, museums, and more in the Student Activities and Leadership Office. If permission to doors equipped with card readers has been authorized for you, then you can present your card for access.

You can deposit money on your BeaconCard to use as a debit account. This plan, known as Beacon Bucks, will allow you to make purchases both on and off campus wherever Beacon Bucks are accepted. In addition to the dining locations below, many offices will accept Beacon Bucks for payment.

Meal plans are loaded onto your Beacon ID. All resident students are required to have a meal plan and are automatically signed up for one. Off campus students are not required to have a meal plan but there are plans designed specifically for off campus students. Explore Meal Plan options. Students can add Beacon Bucks on the Beacon Card Website. All locations accept Dining Points, Beacon Bucks, cash, credit, and debit.
