Laurier's OneCard is used as photo identification and as a library card at both the main campus and Brantford campus. It is also a physical activities card and a meal debit card, to be used at the main campus only.

Resident students are required to have a meal plan, with the exception of Bricker Residence, Laurier Place Residence, University Place Residence, Regina Street Residence and all non-traditional style residences. The residence meal plan is divided into three parts: Primary, Alternative and Convenience dollars. Prime dollars can only be spent at the Fresh Food Company (Dining Hall), Waterloo College Hall Cafe, and King Street Residence Cafe.  Alternative dollars can only be spent at On Campus food outlets. The Dining Hall will automatically withdraw dollars remaining in the Prime account first, and then withdraw from the Alternative account. Convenience dollars may be used to purchase food at any On and Off Campus location and is also used for non-food related purchases such as laser printing, photocopying, and taxi rides.

Alternative dollars may be used at the following on-campus locations: Dining Hall, Waterloo College Hall, King Street Residence Cafe (Second Cup), Zoe's Library Cafe (Starbucks), Athletic Kiosk, Wilf's Restaurant and Pub, Vending Machines, and Terrace Food Court: Harvey's, Mr. Sub, Yogen Früz, Pizza Pizza, Union Market and Pita Shack.

Students can also add money to the convenience account (there are no tax savings with this account). This account can be used at any of the designated food locations mentioned above, as well as off-campus food locations (Angie's Kitchen, MacDonell Village, Pizza Pizza delivery, Rude Native Bistro, Swiss Chalet delivery, Farah Foods University Plaza, Quick Sandwiches) and non-food locations (Centre Spot, Bookstore, The Hub, Prism & Laser Printing, Residence laundry services, Beach Bunnies Tanning, University Pharmacy, Sugar Mountain, Medical Services, Waterloo Taxi, and the new OneMall (visit the website at: www.onemall.ca).

Students living off-campus can purchase an optional meal plan from the OneCard office. Tax savings may apply as follows: with deposits of $1800.00 or more, students will receive a 15 percent tax savings (GST and PST exempt) on food purchases at all food locations on campus. The tax savings are effective only for the academic year (September 1 to April 30). Any remaining food dollars left on your card at the end of the winter term will be transferred to your Convenience account. 

Meal plans can be purchased and additional money added throughout the term at the OneCard office. When purchasing food, the amount is deducted from the balance and the new account balance is available upon request. The balance is automatically carried forward to the next term. Students with a remaining balance at the end of the winter term can apply for a refund at the OneCard Office between May 1 and September 15.

If a OneCard is stolen or lost, it is protected once it has been reported in person at the OneCard office. OneCards lost or stolen outside of office hours can be de-activated at any food service location on campus, or it can be de-activated on the OneCard website, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Replacement cards are issued for a $20.00 fee.
