University Updates on Coronavirus

In-person campus visits are on hold right now, so Winston-Salem State University wants to let you explore the campus virtually. Please enjoy the in-person campus tours video and join us for a virtual walking tour that is linked to the WSSU interactive campus map.   

How the Tour Works

Select the link for Carolina Hall to see its location, photo, brief description, and the departments and offices located in the building.   
Select the department/location names to navigate to their individual web pages.  


Let’s Start Your Virtual Walking Tour

Your tour starts at Thompson Student Services Center which houses the campus bookstore, Kennedy Dining Hall, administrative offices, and the campus post office.  During the warmer months you will get to experience Spirit Fridays and other events in the Breezeway right outside of Thompson.  The Greek plots are adjacent to the Breezeway.


From there, you’ll head toward the Clock Tower, a great place to meet up with your friends.  Turn onto Bank Street you’ll see C.G. O’Kelly Library on your left and Blair Hall on your right. Straight ahead is the iconic statue of the university’s founder Dr. Simon Green Atkins.

Bank Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive 


As you continuing walking, you will pass several classroom and administrative buildings including Diggs Art Gallery, RJ Reynolds Center, Hall Patterson, Fine Arts Building, and Eller Hall. Across Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive you will see F.L. Atkins, the Elva J. Jones Computer Science Facility, The Wilveria Bass Atkins Science Building, and the new Sciences Building. As you loop back across MLK, you will pass the Kenneth R. Williams Auditorium.
