The new IRIS Camera System replaced the hand readers and the need to swipe a UGA card for entry into the dining commons starting Fall 2017. The IRIS Camera System uses a mathematical analysis of the random patterns within the iris of an eye to verify a person’s identity. In the enrollment stage, the IRIS Camera System captures a digital photographed iris pattern (D-PIP) of a user’s eyes. To use your Paw Points in UGA Dining Service retail locations, Dining Services may request to see your UGACard and a government issued photo id upon entry. Please have both forms of identification available at all times. When using your Paw Points at vending machines all you need to do is swipe your ID card in the credit card terminal. Please visit our hours page for more information about dining commons and retail hours of operation.
If you have any questions about how to use your meal plan, please feel free to contact us.
