Room Selection for Fall 2016 (Current Students Only)

Housing selection for fall 2016-2017 for current students only will take place April 11 – 15, with some specific processes (e.g., Fraternity/Sorority housing selection) occuring in early April. Please see the Room Selection 2016 flyer for specific dates. Room selection times, which will be delivered to students on March 28, are randomly generated based on your student’s housing classification. (i.e., all rising seniors have selection times that are randomly assigned for April 11 and 12) The more semesters a student has lived on campus, the earlier the selection time will be.  Selection times are not based on GPA or number of credit hours. Please encourage your student to attend an information session, and consult our FAQs for additional information.

For new families with students in the Class of 2020, room assignments for incoming first-year students will take place later this summer.  Information will be available in early May whe the New Students website for 2016 goes live.

The police department will be conducting a Citizens Police Academy Lunch and Learn series from February 10 through April 20.  This will give Wake Foresters an opportunity to gain insight into the daily functions and responsibilities of our law enforcement personnel. The overall goal of the Academy is to improve police and community interaction.
