Quinnipiac students unhappy with QCard system

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Nov 07, 2011  ||   ,

The new QCard system at Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University isn’t exactly receiving the warm student welcome that administrators had hoped for, according to a university student newspaper.

Students can now “tap” their QCard to access to certain campus buildings, in addition to purchasing meals in the school’s cafeteria. But students are discontent with the fact that only half of the cafeteria lines support the new feature, this and that they are still required to manually swipe their QCard for getting into their individual dorm room.

“They’re good and useful in that they’re easy to access your building,” said sophomore student, Anmol Mehta. “But then I have to slide it in to get in my room. They might as well make it so that it’s all tap and not go back.”

Adding salt to the wound, the new QCard system also carries a new replacement price. Instead of the $20 from the old system it now costs students $30 to replace their QCard in the event it becomes lost or stolen.
