Gatehouse Schedule for Friday Night (3/22)

The following message was sent to the campus community on Thursday from Communications and External Relations.


Wake Forest’s gatehouses will begin operating two hours early on Friday night, March 22, as the University hosts a sold-out concert on Davis Field.  The Reynolda Road and University Parkway gatehouses will start operating at 8 p.m. and the Polo Road entrance will close at that time.  The gatehouses will be staffed until 6 a.m. Saturday morning. 

The University Police Department reminds students, staff and faculty to go to the police website and register in advance guests coming onto campus at 8 p.m. or later Friday night.  Anyone not pre-registered should expect delays at the gatehouses.  Also, vehicles without proper vehicle identification will be stopped at the gatehouses between 8 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday.  Drivers will be asked for name and destination; officers may issue a short-term visitor pass. 

The WAKEstock concert will run from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., but concert gates will open at 6:30 p.m.  Parking will be available in lots W and Q.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
