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!

You can also take a take a self-guided tour to explore campus on your own or check out our virtual walking tour if you’re unable to visit Wake Forest in-person.

Please note, due to the possibility of changes in campus operations, the University may suspend 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!
