Each campus now offers campus bucks for spending (services will vary by campus - see above) and will roll over from year to year. However, campus bucks are subject to the State of Maine unclaimed property laws if you do not make a purchase for over a year.
Dining dollars, flex dollars, and bonus dollars are included in your Sodexo meal plan and can only be used on the campus where you reside. Any funds not used by the end of the academic year are forfeited. These dollars will be automatically be used before “bucks” if you have them on your account.

Campus Bucks can be added through the eAccounts portal or the mobile app. See “eAccounts” information below.
Funds may also be added with cash at a PHIL Station on the UM & USM Campuses (Portland,

- Will my Campus Bucks expire if I don’t use them?
As long as you actively use your account, Campus Bucks do NOT expire. If you do not make a purchase within a 12-month period, Campus Bucks are subject to Maine Unclaimed Property laws and will be sent to the State of Maine. We will attempt to contact you prior to unclaimed property activation.
Upon graduation or withdrawal, you may request a refund of any unused funds remaining in your ‘Bucks’ account (by emailing email@example.com) stating your request for a check refund with your current address).
