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 Care Center.

Health insurance

All curriculum students are covered by accident insurance; costs are included in student fees.


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 Wake County 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.

Emergency Blue Light call boxes are located throughout all Wake Tech campuses, and all campus elevators have emergency phones that connect the caller with the Communications Center, which is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for emergencies and non-emergency assistance.
