All members of the Suffolk community are required to have a Ram Card for identification purposes and access to secure locations, such as residence halls, and the library. Use your Ram Card ID for photo identification, Ram Account funds, resident meal plans, secure entry to residence halls, library access, and optional Student Advantage.
The RAM Card may be acquired by visiting the Suffolk University Police Department.

The Ram Account is a stored-value, declining-balance account linked to your Ram Card. You can use it to make on- and off-campus purchases at select vendors. You can easily add funds to your Ram Account online. This account is open to all commuter and resident students, faculty, and staff. Ram Account funds can be used at participating on- and off-campus locations, and they are available as long as you are an active member of the Suffolk community. It is the convenient, cashless way to pay!
You do not need to sign up for a Ram Account—the minute you join the Suffolk community, you automatically have one. Once you’ve added funds to your Ram Account, you’re ready to start swiping your Ram Card as you would a debit card.

Using Your Ram Account
Recommended Ram Account Budget
There are numerous factors to consider when deciding the initial amount of money you would like to deposit into your Ram Account, such as:
- Do you live on campus?
- How many meals/snacks a day will you be eating while on campus?
- Will you be making purchases at the bookstore?
Please note that all funds will roll over from semester to semester and from year to year. If you don't use all your money this semester, you always can in the next one!
|Recommended Budget Range||Low-Range||Top-Range|
For detailed account activity, as well as balance information, log on to The Service Portal. Additionally, each time you make an off-campus purchase, your receipt will include your current balance. Upon request, on-campus cashiers will also provide receipts with balances. Balance information and transaction histories are also available at the Office of the Bursar located at 73 Tremont Street, 6th floor.
Terms and Conditions
You may pay for purchases using Ram Account funds as long as you are a member of the Suffolk community. Ram Account funds roll over from semester to semester and from year to year. There are no fees associated with the Ram Account. Ram Account funds, however, are not available for cash withdrawal. Upon graduating from or leaving Suffolk University, or after 24 months of inactivity, you will forfeit any remaining Ram Account funds. Ram Account deposits are nonrefundable.
