Buy avocado toast with Apple Wallet's student ID in these new universities
At its WWDC event last summer, Apple promised new features coming to its Wallet app in the fall. One of those was the ability to only use your iPhone or Apple Watch around campus, and that goes both for payments and for access at various locations that heretofore would have required your Student ID card or pass.

Fast forward to last October, and the company activated the option at Duke University and the Universities of Alabama and Oklahoma. Students were able to access dorms and dining halls, gyms and libraries, along with campus events or attending class. 

They could also make purchases from the campus retail shops and bookstores, or and pay for laundry and items from vending machines. All from the comfort of their iPhones or Apple Watches. 

The pilot rollouts then continued with Johns Hopkins, Santa Clara and Temple universities, and now Apple is expanding the program in great numbers, check out all the institutions of higher learning where you can use Apple's Wallet Campus ID program starting this school year:

  • Arkansas State University
  • Chowan University
  • Clemson University
  • Duke University
  • Georgetown University
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • Louisburg College
