Gorlok Bucks Program Continues Serving Up Big Savings for Webster Community

| September 10, 2014
Gorlok Bucks can be used all over the home campus and at participating off-campus merchants to pay for food and beverages.

Gorlok Bucks can be used to pay for discounted food and beverages at dining locations throughout the home campus and at participating off-campus merchants.

Webster University has entered into an agreement with DishOut to continue the popular Gorlok Bucks program, a convenient debit account accessible with your Webster ID card.

Just make a deposit into your Gorlok Bucks account and you can swipe your card all over campus and at participating off-campus merchants to pay for food and beverages. When used at Campus Dining Services locations, purchases are tax-free and subject to a discount. Gorlok Bucks accounts are available to students, faculty, and staff.

Special thanks to these departments and offices for making the continuation of this program possible: Information Technology, Campus Dining Services, Finance, Housing and Residential Life, and Bursar’s Office.

Changes to Gorlok Bucks Program

Changes to the program this year include the list of off-campus merchants and the process for signing up for an account. You can no longer sign up for an account, or add funds to an existing account, through the Campus Dining Services office.
