What is Fenway Cash?

Dining Service accounts may only be used at Dining Service locations on campus. You can purchase commuter dining plans online through Simmons Dining at the Simmons Campus Dish.
What's the advantage of using Fenway Cash?
Your purchases are pre-paid so you never have to worry about carrying cash, checks and credit cards. You cannot spend more than what you have put into your account. You just need your ID card with Fenway Cash to make purchases virtually anywhere you would use money on campus.

You will no longer have to run to the bank machine, scrounge for change, or search for your ATM card, credit card, copy card, checks or cash!
