You can add credit to your Cumbria Card at the following locations:

  • Ambleside: Charlotte Mason Building
  • Carlisle (Fusehill Street): outside the security office, Bowscale
  • Lancaster: Harold Bridges Library entrance foyer
  • Penrith: Room CCL010 on the ground floor of the library.

Want to check your credit balance?

Log on to a university computer.

  • Hover, with your mouse, over the black £ icon on the bottom right side of the screen. A pop-up box appears, displaying your credit balance.
  • At Brampton Road: the icon is on the top right of the screen.
