ARRIVAL MAP – Please use the map below to show where to enter campus, drop off luggage, park, and help your student check in upon your arrival.  Please keep this email handy on your phone or tablet: HPU Map to R.G. Wanek Center for Check InSome additional information about check-in:

  • Though females will reside in the University Center II residence hall and males will be in the R.G. Wanek Center, all students will drop off their luggage and then initially check in at the Wanek Center.
  • If you use a smartphone or other navigation device for directions, type in ‘R.G. Wanek Center, High Point University’ and it should steer you correctly.
  • Do not come through the university main gate off University Parkway. Instead, access Panther Drive from Lexington Avenue or other points north of the campus.
  • As noted by the blue star on the map, you will unload your luggage at the shuttle stop next to the Wanek Center. Staff will be there to greet you.  After unloading the car, you can follow the map to drive around the Wanek Center to the designated parking area. Then check in at the Security desk inside the Wanek Center (red star).
