Use the Get Mobile app to pay with Campus Cash

Anyone with an IdentiKey can now make contactless Campus Cash payments at campus dining locations with the Get Mobile app. Search for the Get Mobile app in your app store. In the app, search for the University of Colorado Boulder with the “search all institutions” button, and then sign in using your IdentiKey. Once you’ve signed in, the app will display your Campus Cash balance, and give you a QR code that you can use to make contactless payments for meals at dining locations that accept Campus Cash. Visit the Buff OneCard site to add money to your Campus Cash balance

Order ahead using Nutrislice

You can order your meal ahead of time for pick up at The Alley at Farrand, CU on the Run, Farrand Market, Sewall, SEEC Cafe and WeatherTech Cafe. Meal plan holders can use the Nutrislice app or the Nutrislice website to place orders at any of the grab-n-gos, and then pay ahead of time with a meal swipe. All students, faculty and staff can use Nutrislice to order meals ahead at SEEC and the WeatherTech, pay with Campus Cash or Munch Money within the app and schedule pick-up.
