Interim Housing

Interim Housing is for students staying after the spring semester for summer school and/or are athletic competition. This year Interim Housing will be hosted in Collins Residence Hall.

Students who need to remain for commencement-related activities may be able to stay in their current assignment or may be relocated to Collins Residence Hall depending on projects beginning at the end of the spring term.

There is a charge ($15 per night) for students staying in Interim Housing for purposes other than commencement. This fee will be billed to the student’s student account.

Interim Housing is not guaranteed until the student’s request has been approved. Requests are due by May 7, 2018, at 8:30 a.m. Students may submit a request through WIN (WIN > Virtual Campus > Residence Life and Housing).

For students staying in Collins Residence Hall during Interim Housing, please note the annual Wake Forest University Central Heating Plant shut down will begin on Monday, May 21, 2018, at 3 p.m. The steam shutdown to the campus is necessary for inspections and maintenance of the boilers as well as the steam distribution system. The steam outage will disable building heat and domestic hot water systems (sinks, showers, etc.) campus wide, thus you will not have hot water. The boilers will be back to normal operation by Friday, May 25, 2018, at 8 p.m.


Summer School

For those students needing housing during Summer School, the 2018 Summer School Housing Application is also available through WIN>Virtual Campus>Residence Life and Housing.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
