Angelou Residence Hall

Maya Angelou Residence Hall, named after the poet, actress, author and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou, completes the neighborhood of first-year residence halls on the south end of campus. Dr. Angelou was also the Reynolds Professor of American Studies at the University from 1982 until  per passing in 2014. She described herself as a “teacher who writes,” but the impact of her legacy of courage, honesty and strength reaches well beyond the classroom. The pen and bird on the seal signify the uplifting power of Dr. Angelou’s words in works like “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” and “Still I Rise.”

The residence hall, which opened in 2017, houses first-year students in a co-ed corridor-style layout with a classroom, media/game room, lounge/break rooms with kitchens, study rooms and a recreation lounge.

The Office of Residence Life and Housing along with the Deacon OneCard Office are located on the Ground Floor of the hall. The project is seeking LEED Silver Certification.

For immediate assistance during business hours, please contact the Office of Residence Life and Housing at 336.758.5185. If there is an emergency or for after-hours assistance, please contact Wake Forest University Police at 336.758.5911
