Housing Guide

As you prepare for the start of the Masters in Management program, we know that a major decision you will need to make is where you will live for the coming year. To help you in that process, Wake Forest School of Business is pleased to offer the Wake Forest Graduate Business Housing Guide. This concise and informative guide will outline popular neighborhoods near the Wake Forest campus, and provide you with general descriptions, features, pros and cons, and places of interest. The guide, which is based on student input, also lists many of the popular apartment complexes for Wake business students and includes student ratings, price ranges and amenities. In addition to the housing guide, please review the information below when considering all your housing options.

Wake Forest University Owned Off-Campus Properties

When evaluating housing options, we hope you will give first consideration to properties owned by Wake Forest University. Over the past few years, the university has spent millions renovating their off-campus properties – it’s worth your time to check it out!

All off-campus houses that are owned and operated by Wake Forest University are listed on the Wake Forest Properties website. Each property is relatively large and typically consists of multiple bedrooms, a kitchen, common areas and shared bathrooms. These houses are located within walking distance of campus and provide the opportunity to live among peers but also maintain privacy with single bedrooms. For current rental rates, please visit Wake Forest Properties or contact Hope Jordan at 336.758.7161 or jordanha@wfu.edu.

Availability is limited. The best time to secure a spot is between February-April.

Local Apartments and Housing

Many popular local apartments and rental houses are maintained in a common database for interested Wake Forest graduate students. To view current listings and neighborhood resources, refer to the Residence Life and Housing Property Rental Listing. Please note as graduate students, you do not need University approval prior to securing off-campus housing.


Interested in sharing housing expenses? Each year incoming graduate business students find roommates either within their program, or across other programs. To find a roommate, we recommend joining your class Facebook group. Attending any scheduled spring on-campus events is another great opportunity to interact with future classmates and find a potential roommate.
