Add Money to Your Account
There are two primary ways to add money to your Bay Bucks account - via the Web or at a campus PHiL station.
Add Via the Web
Add to your own account
Navigate to Bay Bucks and log in with your NetID and Password. Follow the steps to easily add money to your account with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express only). There are no fees to add value to your account using a credit card.
Have someone else add to your account
To have someone else (like a parent or guardian) add money to your Bay Bucks account, simply give them your 9-digit PS ID (printed on your card) and make sure they know how to spell your first and last name. They can log in as a guest and add money to your account using their credit card.
Add Via a PHiL Station on Campus
A PHiL station is a machine, much like an ATM, that allows you to add money to your Bay Bucks account using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express only) or cash. There are four PHiL stations on the Hayward campus – at the University Library, the Student Services and Administration Building Lobby, New University Union and at Pioneer Heights.. There is also a PHiL station on the Concord campus.
