Your BuzzCard Takes You Places!

Your BuzzCard does a lot more than just serve as your campus identification. Your card is your key to meals and purchases on and off campus as well as to buildings like the library and classroom buildings. You can also gain access to important campus services and a whole lot of fun stuff using your BuzzCard! Watch our video to learn about all of the places your BuzzCard can take you.

Frequently Asked

I am new to the Georgia Tech community. When do I get my new BuzzCard?

Students must submit your photo and government issued ID online first! We must have your approved photo in our systems to produce your BuzzCard. First Year undergraduate, transfer and graduate students will receive your BuzzCard at Move-In or during Week of Welcome.

Most First Year students who reside in on-campus housing will receive your BuzzCard inside your housing move-in packet, so check in at Housing first.  If the BuzzCard is not in your housing move-in packet, come to BuzzCard at the Campus Center Pavilion during Move-in and Week of Welcome, 8/12-8/20.  Our hours are 9am-3:45pm. You can pick up your BuzzCard or sit for a photo session if we did not receive your photo online. Bring your government-issued driver's license or passport!

New faculty and staff must come to BuzzCard to sit for a photo and card production session on or after your approved start date. Check information above for our Week of Welcome location.

New OMCS students may inquire about having a BuzzCard mailed to you after the 2nd week of classes begin by submitting a support ticket to BuzzCard.

What do I do about a lost or stolen BuzzCard? 

You can suspend or reactivate your card, before you receive a new one.

* Please see Sections 4 & 6 of your account's Terms and Conditions in regards to replacements and unauthorized purchases.

** Students needing access to their dorm/room may visit their satellite housing office (8a-8p weekdays) or contact the PL/RA on call; either will be able to assist you with getting in to your dorm. All other issues will have to wait until the next business day.

Can I transfer funds between my BuzzCard Account funds, Dining Dollars and Dining Bonus Dollars?

No, these are all separate stored-value accounts and the funds are neither transferable nor interchangeable.

What is the difference between BuzzCard Account funds, Dining Dollars and Dining Bonus Dollars?

BuzzCard Account funds are taxable, flexible and accepted at over 200 locations on campus, including vending machines, laundry machines, select Tech Square merchants, and all Campus Dining locations.

Dining Dollars are non-taxable, dining-specific funds that are accepted only at Georgia Tech Dining locations.

Bonus Dining Dollars are the 10% bonus funds given when there is a purchase of the $400 or $600 Dining Dollar plans in a single transaction. They are accepted in the same dining locations as Dining Dollars.  Bonus Dining Dollars will be used automatically when the main Dining Dollars account has been depleted.
