Student Services Center Reminders

The Student Services Center is in the Olmsted Student Center – we primarily assist with ID Cards, Parking, Bulldog Bucks, and Student Employment Paperwork.

Bulldog Bucks are funds that can be used for on campus spending at the bookstore, the dining facilities, participating off campus merchants, or at campus printers – they are different than Flex Dollars, as Flex Dollars can only be used for on campus dining.  If you would like to add Bulldog Bucks to your student’s account, you can do so with a guest deposit here or on the Accepting Locations website – students love to receive these “gift cards” to the Drake community!  This is an optional account, funds can be added at any time in any amount, and funds are carried forward from year to year while your Bulldog in enrolled as an active student.

The Student Services Center is open 8am – 5pm, Monday – Friday, and 12pm – 4pm, Saturday and Sunday, through the academic year – we are closed on University holidays.  Feel free to stop by, reach out via phone (515-271-2000), or email us at if you need any assistance. See you soon!
