Living on Campus

A View with a Room

Living in a residence hall keeps you close to what’s happening on campus and provides a convenient place for studying, socializing, and relaxing. Here’s your chance to step across a virtual threshold into Wake Forest’s residence life and housing – so that one day you might step across the actual threshold, into a world of possibility.


First-year residence halls

First-year students will be assigned to live in one of seven residences hall on South Campus. We call this South Forest.

Angelou Hall  Bostwick Hall  Bostwick Hall  Collins Hall  Johnson Hall  Luter Hall  South Hall

In general, residence halls are coeducational by floor, suite, and/or wing. All rooms are equipped with beds, closets, desks, cable television connections, Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections. We include, as part of standard university furniture, a micro-fridge combination microwave-refrigerator/freezer unit. The use of laundry facilities located in every residence hall is also free to residential students.
