Welcome back, Warriors

We are excited to welcome our students, faculty and staff back to campus. We look forward to a fall semester that will see a return to in-person classes and many beloved Wayne State traditions, and we will spend this summer preparing for that return. This site serves as a guide to keep you informed about the latest campus updates and help you get ready for fall. Through it all, we remain committed to our mission of providing a premier urban education.
