Health & Safety
Health and safety are important components of a successful educational experience, and Wake Tech is committed to providing a safe, secure, and healthy environment for all. We are a smoke-free campus.
College is an exciting time, but it can also be a time of anxiety and stress. Counselors are available on campus to assist students with academic, personal, social, and career issues. Wake Tech does not offer mental health services or social services, but our counselors can refer students to private practitioners or community agencies for additional services as appropriate.
For more information, visit the Student Success Department.
All curriculum students are covered by accident insurance; costs are included in student fees.
Students who need to purchase health insurance for themselves and their families may participate in a group policy through the North Carolina Community College Student Health Plan (NCCCSHP), administered by UnitedHealthcare. [more on Student Health Insurance...]
Ebola is a rare and potentially deadly viral disease that health professionals have been treating in various parts of the world for many years. The current outbreak is contained within the West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other agencies are working together to prevent the further spread of Ebola within the U.S.
Wake Tech has a campus police force and security personnel who patrol all campuses, day and night. They work with local law enforcement, fire services, and emergency medical services to respond to campus emergencies. They also handle campus safety hazards, provide escorts, and offer motor vehicle assistance and other non-emergency services as needed. They have CPR and defibrillator certification, and many are certified Medical Responders.
All campus buildings have Fire Alarm Control Panels and smoke detectors, and many have sprinkler systems. Wake Tech requires complete evacuation of buildings during a fire alarm. Fire drills are conducted throughout the year on all campuses.
Wake Tech campuses have Emergency Blue Light call boxes throughout, and all campus elevators have emergency phones that connect the caller with the Communications Center.

The Campus Police Communications Center is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for emergencies and non-emergency assistance.
