Nearly all residential areas of UIS Residence Life housing provide a vending area for student use. Each court of the townhouse and apartment complexes has a vending machine of some type; either a soda/pop machine or a snack machine or both. Vending machines can be found in the laundry rooms of these areas. Each Residence Hall has a single vending area on the first floor of the buildings. All machines are maintained by an outside contractor named Capitol City Vending. Capitol City Vending will service all machines that dispense a food or drink product.
All machines can be operated under two (2) methods: The iCard or Cash. If you are using your iCard, you will need to make sure funds are on your card in order to activate any machines. When using cash, the machine will accept any denomination of US coin except pennies and single $1 US currency bills. Foreign coins will not be accepted.
