Bearcat Card System Upgrade

On Tuesday, July 22, at 6:30 p.m., UC is upgrading to the latest version of the Bearcat Card system in order to provide a better user experience.  Please note that during the transition, the system will be down.

While the Bearcat Card system is upgrading, access to the Residence Halls, meal plans and the Campus Recreation Center will be available, but funds on Bearcat Cards will not be available until the system comes back up. We anticipate the system will be back up and running by 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 24. On-campus locations will come up first. It may take several days to get all off-campus locations converted to the new system. We anticipate all locations will be completely up and running by Friday, August 8. Visit our Bearcat Card site at to see a daily list of merchants as they come back online.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Should you have any questions during this time, please contact the Bearcat Card Office at, or call 513-556-2000, or log a call at

Q & A

Why did you choose to attend UC? When I was younger my mother was sick, so my Godfather took me to the UC basketball games. From then on, I knew I wanted to be a Bearcat.

How have you contributed to UC? How have you gotten involved? I am a Student Orientation Leader (SOL), in a fraternity, and a member of Student Government.

How has UC impacted your life? UC has encouraged me to participate in community service. One example is the Cincinnati Plunge.

What would you like to do after you graduate? I plan to go into sales, preferably medical device sales. I believe a plan B is always necessary, which is why I'm getting a design minor as well.

What's your favorite place to use your Bearcat Card? My favorite place to use my Bearcat Card is Cilantro!
