One of the best ways to learn more about WSSU is to take a tour. You will feel the welcoming vibe as soon as you step onto campus.

Schedule a Campus Tour

Each session begins with an information session followed by a walking tour of the campus and will last about 45 minutes. This is the best way to decide if Winston-Salem State University is for you. You'll learn more about:

  • applying for admission
  • academics
  • organizations
  • the WSSU student experience   


Business 40 through downtown Winston-Salem will close at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17 until 2020. The closure of the 1.2-mile stretch between Peters Creek Parkway and U.S. 52 will have a significant impact on navigating to the Winston-Salem State University campus.

Traffic will be detoured to I-40, U.S. 52, and Peters Creek Parkway. The North Carolina Department of Transportation recommends allowing an extra 20-30 minutes to reach your destination. For more information, visit
