Important Info

Using Your Meal Card 

Your Bentley University ID Card can be your ticket to the many outlets on campus. With the purchase of a meal plan and/or Falcon Funds, simply present it when you visit for meals in The 921 Dining Hall. Each time, one meal/entry from your plan is subtracted from your balance. Any unused meals from your plan are not transferable. Please treat your Bentley Student ID (meal plan card) as a credit card. DO NOT lend it to anyone or borrow one from someone else. Fraudulent lending of your ID card will result in your ID being confiscated and sent to Residential Life for further action. 

Falcon Funds 

Opening a Falcon fund Account is a fast, safe and convenient method of managing campus life. The debit card system is a unique money management tool activated through your ID card. Instead of carrying cash, all you have to do is present your Bentley ID and your purchases will automatically be deducted from your personal Falcon Fund Account. Falcon Funds may be used on campus at the Bookstore, Student Information Desk and Campus Dining. Falcon Funds may be added to your card at the card office located at Campus Police.
