SpiderCard Account

SpiderCard is a debit card program that uses pre-deposited funds to pay for purchases on campus. Your participation is voluntary. A SpiderCard account is safe and convenient, eliminates the need to carry cash on campus, and is easy to use.

As you make SpiderCard account purchases, your account is debited. Your limit is based on the amount you have pre-deposited. There are no minimum deposit requirements. Deposits may be made at any time at the Student Accounts Office in Sarah Brunet Memorial Hall. To make a purchase, you present your University of Richmond One Card to the cashier where a SpiderCard account is accepted. Your purchase will be deducted from your account balance.

Do I need to open a new account each semester?

No.  Funds deposited into your account and not used will carry over into the following semester.  Upon graduation, transfer, or withdrawal your Spidercard balance will be transferred to your student account to satisfy any outstanding balances.  Once your account has been satisfied, a refund will be issued for credit balances over $5.

Can I make cash withdrawals using my SpiderCard Account?

No. A SpiderCard account is not considered a bank card and is not associated with a bank. A SpiderCard account can be used for on campus purchases only and not for cash withdrawals.

Are there any fees or charges associated with my SpiderCard Account?

No. Only a $25 replacement card fee if your card must be replaced because it was lost or stolen, which can be applied to your student account.
