Campus information

Wake Forest has a vibrant, active campus, and most students find that they prefer to live in university's residence halls, townhouses, or student apartments for their entire tenure at Wake Forest. First and second-year students are required to live in residence halls, which are coeducational by floor. All rooms are equipped with beds, closet, desks, cable television connection, computer outlets and a microfridge. Laundry facilities are available in or near all residence halls.

There are over 160 different organizations on campus, and all of them give students the opportunity to meet other students with common interests. We have cultural organizations, sports clubs, academic and service fraternities, religious societies, political groups, and debate teams.

The Center for International Studies (CIS) offers international students a variety of activities, programs and resources to support the international students on campus.

International students may also choose to participate in the Friendship Family program, through which they will be paired with a host family that will offer unique local activities and experiences.

Wake Forest University is located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.


Wake Forest guarantees housing for eight semesters to all undergraduates who are admitted as resident students. During the first year, roommates are assigned by the Office of Residence Life and Housing based upon a number of factors which indicate compatibility and common interests. After that, students choose their own roommate.
