President’s Garage

In 1988, the family of DeWitt Hanes gave their family home to Wake Forest to house the University President, including a four-car garage located next to the house. After President and Mrs. Hatch arrived during the summer of 2005, they decided to turn the Garage into a social space for students. It was renovated and the first event was held on August 29, 2006.

The President’s Garage is available only to advisor-accompanied student groups and university departments. Prior approval is required for each event. Requests should be made in DeaconSpace using the “Campus Special” request form. Requests must be submitted two weeks in advance and more time may be needed to obtain reservation approval.

Please carefully review reservation policies before requesting.
