To participate in the the housing selection process, students must first update their profile information and electronically agree to the Housing and Dining Agreement in the Housing Portal. Complete details here.
Room selection is an online process that will occur March 25-29, 2019. Information regarding room selection will be sent to you via email. During selection, bring your laptop to the Help Desk in the parlor of Angelou Residence Hall. We will walk you through the process!
It happens! Come to the Help Desk in Angelou Residence Hall and we will see what we can do.
Think about what is more important: where you live or who you live with. The likelihood of getting one or the other is higher than if you are trying for both.
There is a second round of the room selection process which occurs during the middle of the summer each year. All students who are required to live in campus housing, but do not select during General Room Selection, are automatically placed on the list to select during the second round. Again, this is a normal part of our assignments process and occurs each year.
During the summer, rooms open up across campus for a number of reasons, including when students decide to go abroad or transfer. Students on the list for the second round will receive an email with a selection day to go online and select from what housing is available at that time.
You should review the Room Type Availability List close to your selection day and you should use the Student Portal Instructions, which will help you plan for the process.
Selection times are randomly generated based on your housing classification. The longer you live on campus, the earlier your selection time will be. Selection times are not based on your GPA or number of credit hours.
Wake Forest University views living on-campus as integral to a liberal arts education and the Wake Forest experience. As such, the University has a six-semester resident requirement. In support of students with disabilities, the Office of Residence Life and Housing has a wide variety of housing and dining options on-campus which can accommodate the vast majority of disability needs. For more information, please refer to our Housing/Dining Accommodations page.
Once a request for an accommodation is approved by the Housing Accommodation Review Committee, the student will be notified of their housing assignment and informed of the number of individuals that may be assigned to their living unit. The student should then provide the names of any preferred roommate(s) to the Office of Residence Life and Housing by the designated date.
The Program Assistants will each turn in a roster for all students living in their Residential Engagement Community. The week before General Room Selection, those students will sign up for their place in that community.
Greek blocks are a group of rooms that are blocked off for a Greek organization’s members. They are located in various residence halls across campus and accommodate about 20-30% of the organization’s membership. There are increased expectations and accountability for Greek members living in blocks.
Students living in Greek blocks are expected to live in the block for the entire academic year (unless studying abroad). These students are expected to follow the same residence hall guidelines in the Guide To Community Living. Students living on blocks are expected to contribute positively to the residence hall community. The chapter may be held responsible for the behavior of members living in the block.
Greek house managers will turn in a roster with all members that will be living on the block for the next academic year. These members will receive specific selection instructions.
Yes, but you are committed to living on campus for the full academic year.
Students studying abroad during the Fall Semester will NOT select housing during General Room Selection. Instead, students abroad for the Fall Semester will be required to select their housing for the Spring Semester online in December.
Students planning to study abroad during the Spring Semester should proceed with General Room Selection for the Fall Semester. During the Fall Semester, these students should notify the Office of Residence Life and Housing by visiting the Housing Portal > Room Change and selecting the appropriate reason.
During the spring semester, these students will be able to participate in General Room Selection for the following fall from abroad.
Studying abroad in the Summer will not affect your room selection process, as you will be on campus for both Fall and Spring semesters.
Lists of types of available spaces will be posted on the Residence life and Housing website approximately one week prior to room selection. Specific Room numbers are not provided, but instead the building and room type like the example below. Updated lists will be posted periodically. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for changing information. Below is an example of what the availability list will look like:
It is impossible to predict precisely and there are no guarantees.
In recent years, when rising juniors began selection the following options were available: Apartments, Suites on the Quad, Dogwood, Magnolia and Luter, along with Single and Double rooms in a variety of locations. When rising sophomores began selection, the following options were available: Suites on the Quad and Luter as well as Double rooms in a variety of locations.
Start with two double rooms and think about building up from there. Create a list of additional people that can join your block. Add someone and create a five-person block. If there are no five-person blocks available, add another person and create a six-person block, etc. You could also divide up into two doubles if there are no larger blocks available.
No, you must have the exact number of people to fill a block or room.
You will not be able to choose one space in a double room. You can select any available single or wait until Second Round Selection in the summer. There will be a wide range of spaces across campus, which are likely “better” than what you would have been able to secure otherwise.
No, you will register your off-campus address beginning in April.
