** Students needing access to their dorm/room may visit their satellite housing office (8a-8p weekdays) or contact the PL/RA on call; either will be able to assist you with getting in to your dorm. All other issues will have to wait until the next business day.

Can I transfer funds between my BuzzCard Account funds, Dining Dollars and Dining Bonus Dollars?

No, these are all separate stored-value accounts and the funds are neither transferable nor interchangeable.

What is the difference between BuzzCard Account funds, Dining Dollars and Dining Bonus Dollars?

BuzzCard Account funds are taxable, flexible and accepted at over 200 locations on campus, including vending machines, laundry machines, select Tech Square merchants, and all Campus Dining locations.

Dining Dollars are non-taxable, dining-specific funds that are accepted only at Georgia Tech Dining locations.

Bonus Dining Dollars are the 10% bonus funds given when there is a purchase of the $400 or $600 Dining Dollar plans in a single transaction. They are accepted in the same dining locations as Dining Dollars.  Bonus Dining Dollars will be used automatically when the main Dining Dollars account has been depleted.
