Clear Bag Policy


Effective September 8, 2018, Wake Forest University will institute a clear bag policy for all events at the LJVM Coliseum and BB&T Field. Similar to policies already in effect at many professional and college stadiums and arenas throughout the country, the policy will help enhance existing security measures and ensure a safe environment for all guests. The policy will also make for quicker entry into venues.

Fans are permitted to enter with a clear bag that does not exceed 12″ in height by 6″ in depth by 12″ in width. A one gallon clear plastic bag, such as a Ziploc bag or anything similar, is acceptable.

Fans are allowed to carry in a small clutch bag, approximately the size of a hand or 4.5″ by 6.5″, with or without a handle or strap. Fans are still permitted to carry in items such as phones, wallets and approved cameras.

An exception will be made for medically necessary items for proper inspection. All bags are subject to search.

Guests are asked to return prohibited bags to their vehicles. Items should not be left outside of the venues.

Approved clear bags will be available at the Hanes Mall Deacon Shop, the on-campus Deacon Shop, the on-campus bookstore and DeaconShop.com.
