Plan a Visit

If you like what you see on our website, just wait until you experience Peace in person.

Our downtown campus is an integral part of the landscape of the city of Raleigh, and as an institution, we’re woven into the fabric of the community.

In fact, it’s impossible to talk about William Peace University without talking about the city of Raleigh. That’s why you’ll often hear us talk about our “91,000 acre campus”— Raleigh, with all it has to offer as one of America’s perennial Best Places to live and attend college, is an extension of who we are.

You and your family are invited to take part in our Open House, February 25, 2017.

3 Ways to Visit

  • Attend an Open House
    Open Houses

    Open houses are held four times a year and are a great way to get to know the campus and all that Peace has to offer.

    The open houses at WPU begin at 10:00 a.m. and run until 2:00 p.m. Upon your online registration, you will receive a confirmation email. Detailed information will be sent to you 2-3 days prior to the event. You will have the opportunity to meet an admissions counselor, a coach, faculty and students.
