The residential experience at Wake Forest
Aside from the short commute to class every morning, living in Wake Forest’s residence halls has many advantages and places you in the center of the collegiate experience. Here, you’ll find a residential experience where you can thrive socially and intellectually alongside your peers within a secure, comfortable, inclusive, and engaging learning community.
Residency Requirement and Guarantee
Wake Forest has a six-semester (three-year) residency requirement and is one of the few universities in the country that guarantees housing to students in good standing for eight semesters.
Applying for Housing and Meal Plans
All first-year students will complete a Housing and Dining Application during the summer via our Housing Portal. As a new student, your room will be assigned based on your responses to the Housing and Dining Application. New students may be assigned to a single or double based on their preferences and availability.
First-Year Residence Halls
During your first year, you will live either in a residence hall on the Quad or in one of the seven communities on South Campus:
- Angelou Residence Hall
- Babcock Residence Hall
- Bostwick Residence Hall
- Collins Residence Hall
- Johnson Residence Hall
- Luter Residence Hall
- South Residence Hall
As a new student, your room will be assigned based on your responses to the Housing and Dining Application. New students may be assigned to a single, double or triple room based on their preferences and availability. Note that students assigned to single rooms are charged at the single rate. All students are eligible to request a room change in September based on space availability.
