Program Basics

How does Bevo Pay work?

Bevo Pay is a cashless form of payment that is loaded onto a student’s UT ID card through an account held by the university once they join the program. Students can access this prepaid account from their UT ID cards, much like a debit card. These funds can be used at a variety of on and off-campus merchant locations. Funds can be added online.

What are benefits of Bevo Pay?

Bevo Pay is designed to increase safety and convenience. Every student already has a UT ID card, so there is no need to sign up for any additional accounts. Students always have their ID cards with them, making Bevo Pay accessible at all times. If something happens to a student’s ID card, it can immediately be deactivated online to protect Bevo Pay funds. Cardholder statements detailing every transaction are available online and can be seen by a student or eProxy. There are no monthly maintenance fees, minimum balance requirements or transaction charges. 

What's the difference between Bevo Pay and Dine In Dollars?

Bevo Pay can be used at University Housing and Dining locations and all our participating merchants. Dine In Dollars can be used at University Housing and Dining locations only. Bevo Pay funds roll over and are refundable upon graduation; Dine In Dollars are not.

What happens if a student's ID Card is lost or stolen?

Anyone who has lost their UT ID card or has had it stolen should report it immediately and deactivate it. Replacement ID cards can be obtained at the ID Center for a $10 fee. Photo identification will be required. The bill can be seen on the student’s What I Owe page. Visit the lost ID card page for more information.
