West Texas A&M will be adapting to a cashless campus.

University Officials say two new Buffalo Gold Card machines have been installed that make adding cash to accounts simple and convenient.

The new machines are located in the main corridor of the Jack B. Kelley Student Center Food Court and at the front desk of the Virgil Henson Activities Center.

Randy Rikel, vice president for business and finance said “When we first started moving to a cashless model, our Education Credit Union Buff Smart office pointed out that there are many students who choose not to have a banking account. It just made sense to add these machines so those students who still use cash can do so as easily as possible.”

Rikel said the University has been transitioning to a cashless campus since Spring 2020, prompted in part by safety concerns during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic as well as a suggestion by the University’s auditors about the benefits of going cashless.
