The Conestoga ONECard is your key to the campus. With it you can unlock a sea of services here at the college, and it makes your life here at Conestoga a lot easier!

Not only does having one card make your wallet a lot lighter, it also makes it easier for you to keep organized since you really don’t need anything else on campus.

Right at the start of your day, if you have purchased a bus pass, you can use your ONECard to get on the GRT busses. One cool new feature this year is that your ONECard now has a tap function on these busses so you don’t have to worry about your sticker falling off or fading!

Once you get to the college, you can hit up the gym before class by just tapping your card on the gate! You could also go print off some notes by tapping it on one of the many printers around campus. At the start of the semester your ONECard is automatically loaded with $50 worth of print credits, so print as much as you need.

If you get hungry and decide you want a bite to eat, you can use any Condor Cash that you’ve uploaded to your ONECard to pay for your meal! Condor Cash is great if you want to limit how much you are spending on food because you can control how much money is on the card. Condor Cash can also be used at a variety of places on campus to purchase many different things!

Now it’s time for math class and OH NO! You forgot your calculator! No worries! You can bring your ONECard to the Service Hub and rent one out for a couple hours. Additionally, in class your ONECard is the ticket into your test or exam so make sure you have it with you!

After your school day is done, it’s time to kick back, relax and have some fun! There are some great events on campus that can help you do just that! Event tickets are now purchased on the CSI app and done electronically, however you will need that ONECard as ID when you are entering the event. Be sure to check out the CSI app to see all the special events happening on campus!

This of course is only a sampling of all the things your ONECard can do for you! New services are being added to it all time and I can’t wait to see what they add on next!
