What is a Purple Point Account?

A Purple Point Account is a pre-paid debit account, like a gift card. You use your UW-W ID card, the HawkCard, to access this account. The money you put into the account is available to you for purchases at participating locations both on-campus and off-campus. Your Purple Points are deposited on a dollar for dollar basis…every dollar that you deposit into your account is spendable! UW-W students, faculty and staff can open a Purple Point Account.

The minimum deposit to open a Purple Point Account is $25. An initial deposit amount of $315 - $350 is recommended each school year.

Purple Point Locations

One of the strengths of the Purple Points system is that it can be used off-campus. Students, faculty and staff have the option of using Purple Points to dine at several area restaurants and use their accounts at a local grocery store and salon.

We are always looking to add additional locations to our program. If you have a favorite location that you'd like to see added to our program, email us at HawkCard@uww.edu with the name of the business.

If you are a local business interested in joining our program, please visit our Prospective Merchants Page.
