The University Card/Trojan Gold

The University Card is the official identification card for the DSU community. In addition to being the official ID, the University Card serves a number of different functions, making it a truly valuable tool.

What does the University Card do?

The University Card is the only tool you need to get around at DSU. There are two ways the Card works for you. First it serves as a library card, meal card, activities card, Community Center card and residence hall/Trojan Center access card.

The second way is the "stored value" Trojan Gold program. This feature allows purchases at the Bookstore, the Production Center, vending machines, laundry facilities, concessions, and copy machines in specific locations on campus, as well as at the Marketplace, Java City, and Bits 'n Bytes convenience store. Trojan Gold is also accepted at several off-campus sites, including Classic Corner, Dairy Queen, McDonalds, Pizza Ranch, Taco John's, Pizza Hut and Stadium Sports Grill.

Trojan Gold

DSU is pleased to provide Trojan Gold, a prepaid, stored-value program that allows funds to be loaded onto your University Card. The amount of funds loaded onto your University Card is the funds you have available to spend; there are no hidden fees or costs.

An individual's balance can be verified at any point of sale or at the University Card Office during regular office hours. Your balance carries over from semester to semester and year to year. At the end of your DSU term, any unspent funds over $20.00 are refunded to you after a $5.00 check processing fee. With Trojan Gold, you get the convenience of cash without the need to carry pockets full of coins.

Safe and Secure

If your University Card is stolen or lost, call 256-5146 during regular business hours, to deactivate it. Once deactivated, your funds are instantly protected. Carrying the University Card is a safer option than carrying cash, and your picture is on it for added security.

How to activate your Trojan Gold Account

Simply stop by the University Card Office in the Student Services Center with your cash, check, or credit card. A minimum deposit of $25 is required. After activating your account, you may add to it at any time. Checks and cash are accepted by mail and credit/debit cards are accepted by telephone (256-5146).

For further convenience, parents can transfer funds onto your Trojan Gold account monthly by automatic withdrawal from their credit card.
