Bull Buck$ is a campus-wide declining balance program for USF St. Petersburg students, faculty, and staff. Participants add value to their “account” which is linked to the BULL BUCK$ Card.
Bull Buck$ reduces the need to carry cash on campus and provides an alternative to commercial bank cards. Parents can add value to student accounts online from home which will allow students to use the funds for incidentals on campus at USF St. Petersburg.
In addition, some USF St. Petersburg retail locations offer special discounts for using Bull Buck$. Bull Buck$ is also the method of payment for most copy and print services in our library and lab locations. These funds cannot be used at dining facilities on campus.
HD cable internet is provided in all student rooms. Students residing in the University Student Center (USC) will need HD ready TVs, with a QAM tuner. Students in Residence Hall One (RHO) will only recieve standard channels and will not receive the HD channels if they do not have a TV with a QAM tuner.
All residential buildings are on the USF wireless network. For an additional fee, wired connections are available. Contact Campus Computing with questions about internet within the residence halls.
Laundry services are available in the residence halls provided by Mac-Gray Laundry. You can use LaundryView to check the status of the machines that are in use.
LINENS & BEDDING
USF St. Petersburg works with Our Campus Market for bedding and linens that are guaranteed to fit our residence hall mattresses and provide maximum comfort. Find pillows, comforters, mattress pads, bath towels, accessories and much more!
We encourage families to check their existing home-owner’s insurance policy to see if their students’ on-campus residential space is covered. Or, refer to this list of companies that provide renters insurance: Renters Insurance.
