The Deacon OneCard office oversees all aspects of Physical Security Technology, including: cameras, card readers, automatic door operators, and locking devices. The Deacon OneCard Office is located in Suite 001, Angelou Hall, within Residence Life and Housing.
The Deacon OneCard is the official Wake Forest University identification card. While primarily used for identification, the Deacon OneCard is also used for on-campus financial transactions, library privileges, event admission, and building access.

Cameras are provided in the entrances and common areas of a large portion of our buildings for the safety and security of our students. Cameras do record and may be monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
All exterior entrances in residential communities will be secured 24 hours a day via card readers and/or doors that automatically lock. With regards to card access, undergraduate students access our residential communities utilizing their Deacon OneCard.
It is a violation of University policy to enter the residence halls using someone else’s Deacon OneCard. Furthermore, it is against University policy to loan out your ID card or bypass the card access system in any way – including, tampering with doors and locking mechanisms.
If a card reader’s light is solid red, you will need to use your Deacon OneCard for access. After placing your Deacon OneCard on the reader, the light indicator will turn green and unlock the door briefly, if access is allowed to that area. If the card reader light is green, the door is unlocked. If the light flashes red, access is not allowed. If the light flashes red and access to the area should be allowed or if the light continues to flash red, please contact the Deacon OneCard Office at 336.758.1949 during business hour or University Police at 336.758.5591 after hours for assistance.
