The Department has an EPOS (electronic point of sale) system which may be used to pay various internal charges (particularly those incurred in the Canteen and for printing). Deposits may be made to this in round sums (£5, £10, £20 etc) in cash or on-line by credit/debit card. Cash payments may be made in our canteen (please do not ask to do so during busy periods, i.e. lunch time) and to the cashier in the Finance Office. Staff and students can monitor the balance they have on the system and make on-line payments by going to http://epos.eng.cam.ac.uk/ using their Raven password to gain access.
Use of the system in the Canteen is controlled by the University Card. The Department usually obtains card details for all its members automatically from the University Card Office but sometimes this process breaks down and you will need to ask to have your card added to the data we receive before you can use the system. Note that your Card is simply used to identify you: no special EPOS information is stored on the Card; and, if you get a new card, this will provide access to exactly the same account (and balance) as the old card.
Users are normally expected to use up any remaining balance before leaving the Department, however if for some reason this is not possible then they may request a refund, up to a maximum of twenty pounds, from the cashier in the Finance Office. The individual will need his/her University card and be able to demonstrate that they are about to leave the department.
Further Terms and Conditions apply to on-line payments.
