Cashless Payment

Wolfson operates a cashless payment system to pay for food and drinks in the College cafeteria and bar. By default all members have accounts on this system and their University cards are linked with their accounts. In addition members of the College can also use the "UpayChilli" mobile app to pay for food and drinks. The cashless accounts need to be topped up in advance on the UpayChilli website or through the mobile app.

Visitors can also signup for UpayChilli "Visitor accounts" and use the mobile app for top up and cashless payment. Details are given below under the Visitors section.

UpayChilli for Members

UpayChilli is the top up system for the cafeteria cashless payment system. You can access it in three ways.

  1. Through Raven password at www.upay.wolfson.cam.ac.uk. For this to work your email address on Upay must be your Cambridge University personal email like xyz123@cam.ac.uk. If you change email address on Upay to something else such as a role-based email, hotmail or gmail then this method will not work.

  2. You may also login to Upay directly on www.upaychilli.com. For this you need a Upay password. The easiest way to obtain a password is to use the “Forgotten Password” link on www.upaychilli.com. A link will be emailed to you in a few minutes that will let you set a new password. This method works with any email address.

  3. Through UpayChilli mobile app. Currently mobile apps are available only for Android and iOS devices and can be downloaded for free from their application stores. Use your email and Upay password to log on to the mobile app. To get a password follow the "Forgotten Password" link on the app. A link will be emailed to you in a few minutes that will let you set a new password. To make a payment at the tills click on "Pay now" link on your mobile app. This will display a QR code on your mobile. Scan this code under the scanners located by the tills.

UpayChilli for Visitors and Alumni

Wolfson alumni and visitors who are not current members of the College may sign up for a visitor account through the UpayChilli mobile app. Currently mobile apps are available only for Android and iOS devices and can be downloaded for free from their application stores. Follow the link "Visitor Registration" on the mobile app. During the registration process, you will be prompted for an affiliate ID that in our case is "WolfsonVisitor". Following registration top up your account using a debit or credit card. To make a payment at the tills click on "Pay now" link on your mobile app. This will display a QR code on your mobile. Scan this code under the scanners located by the tills.

Paying by Debit and Credit Cards

Debit and Credit cards are also accepted at the College cafeteria and bar. The staff on tills will guide you if you wish to follow this method.

The default discount for students and staff will not be available if a debit or credit card is used at the tills to make a payment.
