Most administrative offices work on a Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. schedule. If you have an urgent need to reach someone at the university because you have a concern that must be addressed quickly during a time that our offices are not open, we have designated the University Police as our 24/7 contact. They can assess the situation and determine who best to address your concern.
University Police works 365 days a year. They are able to get in touch with on-call duty staff 24-hours/day.
- 336.758.5591 (non-emergency)
- 336.758.5911 (for the type of emergency where you would dial 911)
For More Information
If you still have questions, please contact our office and we’d be happy to answer them for you.
Reports of fraudulent calls about student arrests
WFU Police has received information regarding a fraud scheme in which Wake Forest’s non-emergency number (336.758.5591) was spoofed. The caller tells the family member that their student has been arrested and to send bail bond money using Venmo.
If you receive a call from 336.758.5591 where the caller requests that you send money to resolve an issue, know that Wake Forest University Police will never make calls asking that money be sent.
If you have questions or concerns about your student’s wellbeing or whether a call you received is legitimate, call the Wake Forest Police non-emergency number at 336.758-.5591. You probably also want to call your student.

Stop, Drop and Roll
One of the best ways parents and families can help their students is to let them handle their business as independently as possible. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem, frustration, or a decision to make.
