Vending on Campus

Our goal is to provide convenient and trouble-free food and beverage vending machines to the campus community where our customers work, study, relax and live 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Campus vending machines accept both the Dining Account and Husky Card Account.

Refund Requests or Malfunctioning Machines

For cash lost in machines, please visit one of our on-campus refund centers:

  • By George, main cashiers
  • The Rotunda, main cashiers

You may also request a refund by emailing Please describe the problem and provide your UW student or employee ID number along with the amount of the transaction. If your Husky Card Account was charged for a product you did not receive or if you lost cash in the machine, we can send a refund to your campus mail box or off-campus address.

To report a malfunctioning machine, call 206-685-8221. Please be as specific as possible regarding the machine location, type of machine and the problem so that the service technicians are able to make repairs quickly.
