Meal Plan Orientation

Your meal plan

Our dining team on campus is excited to welcome you to the table with a variety of different plans centered on authentic culinary experiences. We want to make dining on campus easy, so our plans offer access to a convenient combination of sit-down meals, grab-and-go snacks, retail restaurants, marketplaces, coffee shops, guest meals, and more. Learn more about your dining experience below.

Learn about your plan

Meal swipes. All Access. Meal Exchanges. What does this all mean? Our plans come with a number of features to make your dining experience convenient and flexible. Learn about common terms and plan structure in our meal plan video below, and check meal plan requirements and FAQs!


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.
