Frequently Asked Questions about the Manecard

How does Mane Card work?

Cards activate automatically for those students who are enrolled.  If you are currently not enrolled but have Lion Loot on your card, stop by the Mane Card Office.  We will transfer the Lion Loot to a Guest Card.

Where do I go if my card does not open my resident hall door?

Contact Housing Facilities Management located in Rice Hall. (256) 765-5558

How do I check my balance?

Balances may be checked at our office, located in The Commons or by logging onto the CAMPUS CARD CENTER

How Do I Make Lion Loot Deposits?

The Mane Card Office can only deposit CHECKS or CASH into your Lion Loot.

If needing to deposit cash after office hours (Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm) use the Mane Card cash machine located in the Collier Library (first floor by copiers).

Can I make a Dining Dollar Deposit Online?

No.  Dining Dollars are a mandatory fee or belong with a meal plan.  LION LOOT can be used for food on campus and unlike Dining Dollars, never expires.

How do I get a meal plan?

Please visit the Business Office in Bibb Graves to purchase a meal plan.
