Incoming Students

Welcome Home!

The Office of Residence Life and Housing is excited to welcome you to your home here at Wake Forest University.

As a reminder, the University requires students admitted as resident students to live on-campus for six semesters. Additionally, the University guarantees housing for eight semesters to all undergraduates who are admitted as resident students.

During your first year, you will live in one of the seven communities on South Campus. 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. As a continuing student, you will be able to choose your own roommate.

A helpful resource for incoming student families can be found on the Parents & Families website.
