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.
