Marauder Gold


Don't hesitate to take ADVANTAGE of the best deal on CAMPUS!

What is Marauder Gold?

Marauder Gold is a declining balance program that works like a credit card in reverse. Money deposited into your Marauder Gold account may be used to make cash-free purchases at various on and off campus locations that display the Marauder Gold logo. Having a Marauder Gold account is more convenient than carrying cash.

Who can join?

Millersville University students, faculty and staff who possess a valid Millersville University identification card are eligible to participate in the Marauder Gold program.

Can I participate in Marauder Gold if I have a DECLINING BALANCE ACCOUNT?

Yes! Marauder Gold has been developed to add services and more flexibility to your I.D. card; it can be used at the Bookstore, The Galley, the Game room and Copy Shop in the Student Memorial Center and the library circulation desk. Additional locations and services will be added in the future. Check the chart in this brochure for a complete list of campus locations.
