Your Buff OneCard is an incredibly helpful and important tool—especially living in Bear Creek Apartments. It acts as your campus ID, your building and room key, gives you access to the Rec Center, holds your meal plan and more. Because it holds so much information, it must be updated at least every seven days, so don't forget to hit the hot spot! There are two card update stations or hotspot (pictured below) in A Building (one by the main entrance and one next to the office) and one station in B Building (by the digital sign). All you have to do is hold your Buff OneCard up to it for several seconds until the light turns green and you're done for the week! Doing this ensures your card has received important updates. It also monitors the battery life in your res hall room door lock, which means we can replace them before they run out.
If you forget to update and find yourself locked out, simply visit one of the hotspots and update. If you run into any issues with this process, please visit the Bear Creek office.
