2023 Orientation with Campus Enterprises

Welcome to the Pack!

We are Campus Enterprises, but you will better know us as Wolfpack Outfitters, Dining, Student Centers, the Wolfpack One ID Card and more.

Sending your student off to college requires many decisions. We’ve created this quick guide to make some of these choices easier for you.

id card Wolfpack One Card

The Wolfpack One Card is your key to many of the goods and services at NC State. It offers the freedom and flexibility of carrying a single card.

  • Make on-campus purchases through the All Campus account
  • Access your NC State Dining meal plan.
  • Link the card to a PNC account to make pin-based transactions (PNC offers special benefits available only to NC State students)
  • Gain admittance to activities and events
  • Enter your residence hall and other buildings with restricted access
  • Work out at the gym
  • Check out books at the library

Using your card

  • Your Wolfpack One Card has your photo on it, so no one else can use it.
  • Spending accounts are accessed using the card’s red stripe.
  • Purchases are debited from the account you choose at the time of purchase.
  • Access to your residence hall or other restricted area is gained by waving the card over a gray panel near the door.

Protecting your card

  • Find a way to carry your card for ease of use and, at the same time, protect it from scratches, loss or theft. Lanyards and keychain wallets are popular and effective options.
  • Lost or stolen cards should be reported during regular business hours to 919.515.3090 or any time at onecard.ncsu.edu/lost. Lost or damaged cards can be replaced for a $20 fee.

Upload your photo

If you haven’t done so already, upload your photo at go.ncsu.edu/upload-id-photo before arriving on campus for orientation to ensure your card is ready to be picked up.

AllCampus Account

This is a purely optional account associated with the Wolfpack One Card that makes it convenient to budget and make on-campus purchases. There’s no charge to set up an All Campus Account, and there are no transaction fees. Your balance transfers from year to year, and when you close your account, the balance is refunded.

  • NC State Dining locations
  • Wolfpack Outfitters
  • Wolf Xpress Print and Copy
  • Student Health Services
  • Wolfprint (campus wireless printers)
  • NC State Transportation
  • Campus vending machines

While many of these locations and services take other forms of payment, All Campus is the only form of payment accepted by Wolfprint. If you plan to use this convenient method of printing, be sure to add funds to the account.

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars can be used anywhere, including:

  • Restaurants and cafés

  • Vending machines
  • Dining Halls

  • Dining Dollars come with a 5 percent discount at the register! They roll over from fall to spring, and additional dining dollars can be purchased throughout the semester if you run out. Dining Dollars are non-refundable and will expire at the end of the spring semester.

In addition to our meal plans, campus dining locations also accept All Campus, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Cash is not accepted.


Plans are billed through the cashier’s office each semester. Any unspent Dining Dollars from the fall semester will roll over to the spring semester, but they will expire at the spring semester’s end.
If you need to make changes to your plan, do so for the fall semester plan by Sept. 12, 2023, and the spring semester by Jan. 25, 2024. A $250 cancellation fee applies after the cut-off date.

Nutrition + Wellness

We place a special emphasis on providing wholesome food and nutrition information to help you pursue a healthy lifestyle that can be embraced long after your time at NC State. Our award-winning nutrition team is here to make sure you have a positive experience when you eat with the Pack.

Allergies + Intolerances

NC State Dining is recognized nationally for our work to ensure students with food allergies and intolerances can confidently dine on campus. We mark the eight major food allergens (gluten/wheat, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, and soy) plus sesame in all of our dining locations.

If you have food allergies, intolerances or other special dietary needs, schedule a consultation with our registered dietitian, Lauren Smith, at 919.513.5310 or lasmit24@ncsu.edu. You can also access our Food Allergy Guide at go.ncsu.edu/allergy-guide and connect with the Safe Eats Allergy Support Group at go.ncsu.edu/allergy-support-group.

Course Materials

Shopping for the best price on course materials is easy with Wolfpack Outfitters. We work hard to provide the best prices on digital, new and used course materials every day – both in-store and online.

  • Count on us for the correct title and edition – we curate the official book list for the university.
  • Use financial aid and scholarship funds to purchase course materials without having to wait for reimbursement, your student can shop for their course materials prior to the financial aid refund date.
  • Order early and pick up once your student arrives at NC State. We offer convenient order pick-up at our Talley store on Main Campus.
  • Return any unneeded materials before the census date for a full refund.

Look for your custom booklist this summer

We’ll send you an email with instructions on how to access your comprehensive course material list. Order early to ensure they have everything they need on the first day of class. Some classes have many options, including new, used and ebooks. Many professors are combining digital course materials with Moodle through our “All-In” Digital Access program, which is saving students 50 percent or more than the cost of the same used textbook.
