WSU Purple Pass

Introducing Purple Pass to all students, faculty and staff. You can now take advantage of using your WSU Warrior ID like an internal campus debit card. The service is called Purple Pass. Just deposit money on your card to start using it to purchase internal products and services throughout our WSU Campus Community.

You can eat, snack, drink, make copies, purchase merchandise, buy tickets and request Library Services with one card. It’s Purple Pass - simple and easy to use, with the convenience of not having to carry cash with you.
