What is Cat's Cache?

Cat's Cache is a debit account encoded on your UNH photo ID card. There are no minimum or maximum balances, no setup fees, no monthly ​fees and no penalties for refunds. The account balance carries from semester to semester and year to year. Cat's Cache provides cashless access to products and services across campus and at many local businesses, and is available for students, faculty and staff. When you use Cat's Cache to make a purchase, your UNH ID card is swiped through a card reader and the amount of the purchase is deducted from your account balance and the new balance is displayed and/or printed on your receipt.

All ID holders have a Cat's Cache account that can be used as soon as a deposit is made to the account. In order to use online account management features, you must create a user name and password at Once that is accomplished, you can view transactions, statements and balances, make deposits and suspend a lost or stolen card.

Cat’s Cache accounts have no minimum balance and no fees of any kind. Cat’s Cache is fully refundable upon request without penalty, but the entire balance must be refunded at once. After students have graduated or left UNH, any remaining Cat’s Cache balance of $10 or more will be refunded to the student account. A refund of any balance under $10 will be waived unless the student requests that refund before the account is closed. Accounts of graduated and withdrawn students are typically closed no later than 30 days after separation from UNH. Refund requests for Cat’s Cache balances under $10 should be made to the UNH Dining/ID Office in room 101 of Holloway Commons.
