Triton Cash

Triton Cash is the University’s pre-paid spending account that is linked directly to your student’s campus ID card. Triton Cash can be used for laundry, at all HDH markets and Dining locations, and at 50+ locations on and off campus!

Triton Cash is also the payment method for all onsite laundry facilities in the Residence Halls and apartments. Machines are not coin-operated. Wash is $1.25 per wash and $1.00 per dry.

Access your Triton Cash account, check balances and load funds through the Transact eAccounts Portal.  Students will receive their Triton Cash bonus (depending on their meal plan) the week of October 3rd. 

Your Student's Bill

For our returning parents and supporters: be sure to check your student's University Billing Statement to ensure that all University charges have been paid. Their bill can be assessed at the University Billing & Payment page.

For our new incoming parents and supporters: We encourage you to visit our University Billing & Payment page to familiarize yourself with the billing process. We recommend that you work with your student so you can be set up as an “Authorized Payer”. Authorized payers have their own login to access their student's bill and make a payment, if needed. They also receive copies of all billing statements. To find out more about how to become an authorized payer, please check the Parent & Family Programs.

Installation Payment Option: Triton Registration Installment Plan

There are 3 installment plans available to pay for Housing fees: Full, Quarterly or Monthly. If your student receives any form of financial aid, whether it be loans or grants, we recommend that they select Quarterly since financial aid is disbursed to the student’s account on a quarterly basis. When the students filled out their preferences during the Housing contracting period, they were able to indicate which installment plan they preferred. Your student will be emailed regarding changing their installment plan (if needed) before the Housing charges are applied. To take full advantage of the benefits of this program you must apply prior to the first billing due date of each quarter.

The UC San Diego Return to Learn program has been discontinued. It began in May 2020 as a strategic response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, UC San Diego was able to resume full on-campus operations in Fall 2021 and has served as a best practice model for other institutions. Based on this, we will now be adopting current COVID-19 regulations as outlined by Cal/OSHA. We will also continue to use all that we have learned over the last few years while embracing more personal responsibility for our individual health and well-being.
