Cashless & Convenient
What are Eli Bucks? They’re dining dollar credits applied to your Yale University ID card. They give students and university staff a convenient way to purchase meals across the Yale campus and eliminate the need to carry cash or credit cards for that purpose. To use Eli Bucks, you simply present your University ID card at the time of purchase. Access our new and updated eAccounts management portal below.
Enjoy many Eli Bucks benefits, including:
Eli Bucks can currently be used at the Health Center Café, Café Med, West Campus, and SOM's McNay Café.
- Reload – Any Time
Additional Eli Bucks can be purchased at any time, in any amount by active students, staff and faculty with a valid Yale University ID. If your status with the University does not change, your Eli Bucks will not expire, and will carry forward from year to year.
- Purchase Securely
Eli Bucks purchases can be completed by credit card, using our secure payment site – or online. Log in to the Eli Bucks secure portal to purchase, view your current balance, look up recent transactions or manage your account in other ways.
