Open a Huskie Bucks account or purchase a copy card
Campus copiers do not take cash. Use your OneCard or purchase a Courtesy card.
There are a few ways to get a copy card:
Open a Huskie Bucks account at the NIU OneCard office, located in the lower level of Holmes Student Center. Complete a short form and make a minimum deposit of $25.00 to open your account.
Purchase a Courtesy Card at any Value Transfer Station (VTS). Cards cost $1.00. Value must be added to the card before you can make copies. If you purchase a card at a VTS station, remember you must swipe your card to activate it.
NIU Departments can get Credit Courtesy cards at itforms.niu.edu > Copier Services. Copies on these cards will be invoiced monthly by the Division of Information Technology.
Adding value to a copy card
Value Transfer Stations - Value can be added to Courtesy Cards originally purchased at a Value Transfer Station (VTS) or to NIU OneCards. Transactions are time sensitive (40 seconds), so have your Courtesy Card or NIU OneCard and cash ready before you begin your transaction.
itforms.niu.edu > Copier Services. Submit this form to add value to Department Debit Cards purchased from the Division of Information Technology. Department Debit Cards cannot be recharged at a VTS.
