Wake Forest will welcome a new freshman class on Wednesday, August 21, when new student move-in begins at 8 a.m. For faculty and staff scheduled to be on campus that busy morning, the University has recommendations for where to enter campus and park.
On August 21, the University asks that faculty and staff enter campus through the Polo Road entrance. New students and their families will be encouraged to enter campus via the University Parkway and Reynolda Road entrances.
Traffic is expected throughout the day and will begin around 7 a.m. as families arrive for move-in. Due to the increased traffic, faculty and staff seeking to park on campus are encouraged to arrive on campus early. The Hearn Plaza lots will be available for faculty and staff parking. However, the University asks that faculty and staff avoid parking on South Campus (Lots E, F, G, and J) and in Lots Q and W1/W2 to allow parking for our new students and their families.
