All Funds and Plans

purchased for use in Deacon Dining are for the personal use of the owner of the account or plan only and are non-transferable. Meals may not be bought or sold. The Deacon Dining funds and plans cannot be used as a gift card or gift certificate.

Except as otherwise expressly stated in these terms, all Deacon Dining funds and plans are non-refundable and will expire at the end of the school year. If a guest chooses to not participate in a meal plan for the spring semester, food dollars will not roll over to the next semester.


Meal Swipes can be used in our residential dining halls. Once you swipe in, you can enjoy an all-you-care-to-eat meal.


Food Dollars come with your meal plan. These can be used at any Deacon Dining facility working on the same principle as a debit card. Food Dollars carry over from Fall to Spring and expire at the end of the school year.


An Old Gold is a set retail combo that can be used at our on-campus retail locations. You can typically get an entrée, side, and drink.


Though Deacon Dollars do not come with any of our meal plans, this Wake Forest University tender can be used at any of our dining locations. They can also be used at several campus shops.

*All meal plans are non-refundable.
