Student-led walking tours will be led by a current WFU student and will last approximately 60 minutes. They will take you around and teach you about our beautiful campus, welcoming community, and academic rigor. The tour route will not include any indoor building access; however, visitors are welcome to return to campus to visit areas of interest, as building access allows. Currently, campus academic buildings are closed to visitors, but Reynolda Hall, Benson University Center, the Wellbeing Center, the University Corporate Center, Z. Smith Reynolds Library, the Deacon Shop, and select athletics facilities are open to visitors.
Student-Led Campus Tours
We hope you will join us for a tour of our beautiful campus! Student guides lead these hour-long walking tours on Mondays-Fridays at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. ET. Also, on Mondays and Fridays, you may register to attend an information session and the tour, with the morning information session at 10 a.m., followed by the tour at 11, and the afternoon information session at 2 p.m., followed by the tour at 3.
It’s best to register in advance. We accommodate walk-ins only as space allows – first come, first served – which is why it’s best to save your space now!
Please note, due to the possibility of changes in campus operations, the University may suspend information sessions and tours. If this affects your visit, you will be notified by email.
We are delighted you will be visiting Wake Forest University! We look forward to seeing you!
Things to Know before You Register
- The walking tour is limited to outdoor spaces only at this time.
- Please make sure you arrive on time. Our tours must stick to a tight schedule, so, unfortunately, if you are tardy, you will then be given a self-guided tour-book.
- On our interactive campus map, you can view and learn more about the stops that will take place on your tour.
Visitors are allowed to visit campus to take a self-guided tour. Stop by the Porter Byrum Welcome Center to pick up a self-guided tour book or download it below.
