Welcome to Wake! Welcome to The Forest! Welcome Home!

It is our sincere hope that you truly feel welcomed and at home on campus from the moment you step foot on it.  The Office of Residence Life and Housing is here to partner with you in creating your home in The Forest.  One that feels uniquely suited to you and where you can thrive and feel a sense of belonging.

As you navigate your time at Wake, we encourage you to refer to the Guide to Community Living. This document provides information about our facilities, policies, procedures, services, staff, and more about Residence Life and Housing. It serves as a valuable resource for understanding our community standards and expectations and the resources available to support your residential experience. We are committed to fostering a positive and inclusive living and learning environment for all students, and we appreciate your cooperation in upholding our community values.

As a member of this community, many opportunities are available for you to meet new people, build meaningful relationships, and decide where and how you want to live. We offer many social and educational activities that allow you to develop and deepen relationships with our faculty, staff, and students. We hope you’ll take advantage of those that align with who you want to become and allow you to co-create the type of community you hope to be a part of. 

The Residence Life and Housing staff want you to make Wake Forest your home. We are here to partner with and support you as you join and invest in the residential communities at Wake Forest. Please contact our Office at 336.758.5185 or housing@wfu.edu – thank you for being a part of the Wake Forest family and a member of our residential community!

From all of us to you, welcome to Wake!
