Hawkeye Dollars are funds – available to you with your room contract – that may be used at all of our campus dining locations, laundry services, and at some vending machines in the residence halls. You will receive $100 Hawkeye Dollars added to your account at the beginning of each semester you live in the residence halls.
Hawkeye Dollars will expire upon termination of the cardholder's active affiliation with the University of Iowa as a current student, faculty, or staff member, or upon twelve (12) months of inactivity in the account, whichever comes first. The contract holder may apply for a refund of unused Hawkeye Dollars when their affiliation with the University of Iowa ends. Refunds will carry a $20 refund processing fee that will be deducted from the balance. You can check your Hawkeye Dollars balance at any card management kiosk on campus or online.
