All Wake Tech Campuses feature a library and study areas; an Individualized Learning Center (ILC) for reading, writing, and math tutoring; wireless internet access; a photo ID office; and support services that include admissions, advising, career counseling, disability support, and financial aid.
In addition to these services, the Northern Wake Campus offers a bookstore, a STEM Center, open computer labs, a distance education testing center, Student Success Counselors, chemistry and biology labs, music practice rooms, student dining options, and tennis and volleyball courts.
Thanks to Wake County voters’ generous support of the 2012 bond referendum, the Northern Wake Campus is again expanding. Bond funding of $135 million dedicated to NWC will allow Wake Tech to build three new classroom buildings with special features, a new library with learning commons, expanded health sciences labs, and a gymnasium/auditorium. In the fall of 2016, Wake Tech will be able to offer career programs in Baking & Pastry Arts, HVAC, Electrical Systems, Plumbing, Welding, Building Automation Systems (Electronics Engineering Technology), and Construction Management at the Northern Wake Campus.
NWC will continue to be environmentally friendly. Our buildings and landscaping are designed to save energy and water. There is ample natural lighting that improves our moods and internal air that is easy to breathe. Our classrooms are all “smart,” giving us instant access to the Internet and the world. With the completion of a new parking deck, we can also assert that we have enough parking for everyone, even at peak occupancy.
Learning is our focus here – where faculty members treat students as adults and expect them to succeed. Together we are building a community in which we respect each other, our beautiful facilities, and the environment. We hope you will join us in our own bit of paradise.
