Frequently Asked Questions

Please note that the questions answered below pertain to Family Weekend 2021. As planning moves forward for next year, we will update many of these items.

Public Health Guidance

  • Will proof of vaccination be required to attend?

    While proof of vaccination isn’t required for guests, we encourage vaccinations for all. Over 90% of our campus community is vaccinated. We greatly appreciate the willingness of everyone in the Wake Forest community to adhere to and follow health and safety guidelines to support the safety of all Wake Foresters.

  • Will we be required to wear masks?

    Currently, masks are required in all indoor spaces. During outdoor events, masking is optional. We greatly appreciate the willingness of everyone in the Wake Forest community to adhere to and follow health and safety guidelines to support the safety of all Wake Foresters.

  • What other measures are in place to protect the health and safety of campus during Family Weekend?

    As you are likely aware, Wake Forest University is adhering to the mayor of Winston-Salem’s mandate that masks must be worn in all indoor public spaces. Much of what is being planned for Family Weekend is intentionally being held outside where masks are not required, particularly when food or drink is being served. Because we do not have the ability to check vaccination status prior to each event and activity planned for the weekend, we ask families to allow the full protection offered by masks by not bringing food or beverages indoors.

  • Are there any areas of campus where access for families will be limited?

    A limited number of buildings are open for the public; the majority of campus buildings are still restricted to card access only, including the Wellbeing Center. University administrative buildings, including Reynolda Hall, ZSR Library, Benson Center, Wait Chapel and Davis Chapel and certain athletics buildings are accessible to visitors, subject to the current visitor mask policy and restrictions specific to particular buildings. Please note that our residential communities (i.e., student residences) are not open to the public; families should only enter them as needed and must be accompanied by their student.

  • How can we find out more details about Public Health Guidance during Family Weekend?

    For additional information regarding steps the University is taking to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission on campus, we strongly encourage you to review the University’s COVID-19 Notice.

Parking

  • When we arrive on campus, where should we park?

    Reynolda Campus Parking Map

    On Friday, families are welcome to park in any of the general or visitor lots. Overflow parking is available at 2400 Reynolda Road, across the street from the Reynolda entrance to campus.  A shuttle will be running from the front of the Benson University Center to 2400 Reynolda from 9 AM to 9 PM on Friday (Click here for more information about the shuttle.) After 5 PM and during the day Saturday and Sunday, most campus lots are available for families.

    Accessible parking is found throughout campus in marked spaces.

  • Where can we find directions and parking information for the football stadium?

    View stadium maps, directions, and shuttle information.

    Families planning to drive should park in the LJVM coliseum lot. Parking costs can vary. We will offer free shuttle buses running from Lot P (behind Wait Chapel) on campus to the stadium.

    Families should be aware that our local fair, the Carolina Classic Fair, will be underway in the stadium area on game day. Traffic will be heavy and parking may be increasingly limited as the day goes on. However you plan to travel to the game, we advise starting early!

  • Where is handicapped parking at Truist Field?

    Handicapped parking for both will be in the David F. Couch Ballpark parking lot. Shuttles with lifts are available for transport to Truist Field both prior to and after the game. For more info and/or to purchase your parking pass in advance, please contact the Athletics Ticket Office at 336-758-DEAC(3322).
