Upay is a secure cashless system which allows you the user to top up their Bod Card over the internet and book on for dinners and events at Exeter College. You may also top up your card with cash on site at the Porters’ Lodge (9.00am – 6.00pm). If you have any questions about Upay or problems with your Upay account, the Catering Services Manager and Catering Administrator are happy to advise.
