Locations & Directions

We can’t wait for you to get to campus. You’ll enjoy every minute of it.

William Peace University is conveniently located downtown in one of the best cities in the United States – Raleigh, North Carolina. Our campus is more than 20 acres, but our reach extends far past the gates of campus, deep into the 90,000+ acres of downtown.

We offer one of the most unique private, academic and cultural experiences in the nation. You won’t find many colleges with access to the fun and exciting things WPU utilizes on a daily basis. We invite you to our scenic, historic campus for a personal tour, open house, community event, or Pacer athletics event. 




Our mission is to prepare you, and all of our students, for careers in the organizations of tomorrow
