Wake Forest has a vibrant, active campus, and most students find that they prefer to live in university’s residence halls, townhouses, or student apartments for their entire tenure at Wake Forest. For the first three years students are required to live in residence halls, which are coeducational by floor. All rooms are equipped with beds, closet, desks, cable television connection, computer outlets, a microwave and a small refrigerator. Laundry facilities are available at no additional charge in or near all residence halls.
Wake Forest guarantees housing for eight semesters at the University for all undergraduates who are admitted as resident students. During the first year, roommates are assigned by the Office of Residence Life and Housing based upon a questionnaire submitted by each student which evaluates a number of factors, including compatibility and common interests. After the first year, students may select with whom they live and where through the Residence Life and Housing room selection process.
