South Hall

South Residence Hall completes a community of six first-year residence halls on the southern tip of Wake Forest University’s campus and represents the university’s first opportunity to plan, design and construct a building using LEED® guidelines. Home to 201 first-year students, the hall supports Wake Forest’s Residence Life & Housing mission by providing a secure, diverse, and engaging environment, where students can share in intellectual exchange and broaden personal development.

The campus's neo-Georgian architecture was preserved in a building that also seamlessly integrates sustainable design strategies and technologies. Features include bio-retention storm water cells that mesh with the natural landscape; solar panels; light-pollution-reducing lamps; daylighting; and covered bike rack structures to encourage non-vehicular circulation.
Hanbury also designed Magnolia and Dogwood residence halls for sophomores and juniors on the North/Central Campus with suite-style rooms, a café and rooms for student organizational gatherings. 
“The look of the new residence halls is reminiscent of the residence halls across campus, with the brick arches, patio spaces, and southern "front-porch" feel our students love.”
– Donna McGaillard, Wake Forest University
