Vending Machine Changes

Over the semester break, OAS coordinated the upgrading of all the Coca-Cola vending machines.  Coca Cola machines now accept credit cards in addition to cash, Dragon Dollars, and Retail Dining Dollars.  These machines can also accept Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay if you wish to use your smart phone.

If you find you are not able to use any of the above listed methods of payment on a Coca Cola machine, please contact OAS at x-3352.

We hope to upgrade the snack/candy vending machines in the near future – We will keep you posted

Thank you for your patience during the upgrading process.
