TCard is the new Trinity College campus card. This initiative broadens the use of the current Trinity staff and student ID card to include a cashless payment facility across the campus. Your TCard will enable you to access and pay for a range of services across the campus using the embedded electronic purse. Your TCard will also be used as your student and staff identification.

Benefits of using your TCard for purchases include:

  • No more cash. Obtaining cash from the ATM can be very time consuming with large queues. Using your TCard can eliminate this unnecessary disturbance.
  • Faster transactions lead to less queues. With no cash exchanging, and counting, using your TCard will improve the flow of customers at points of sale, ensuring minimum waiting times.
  • Discounts and incentives from TCard retailers.
  • Parents and guardians can top up student TCards online.

All profits generated through the sale of items purchased on the TCard will go back in to the College to support the University’s academic mission of teaching and research, so the College community will benefit too.

All students (except first year students) and staff need to visit a Tap & Go station to activate the TCard facility on their existing student and staff id cards. These stations are located in The Buttery Restaurant, Arts Building Upper Concourse, Human Resources Service Desk and Academic Registry Service Desk.
