A great place to live and learn. Salem College's location offers you the perfect blend of an exciting city and a friendly close-knit village. Make some history of your own in Old Salem, a restored 18th century village which adjoins Salem’s campus. The trade shops, bakeries, restaurants and costumed tour guides add a special spirit to your Salem experience.

Take a three-block walk from Salem’s beautiful, historic campus and you will step into downtown Winston-Salem, an exciting hub of arts and biotechnology in central North Carolina. Choose your entertainment from more than 60 clubs and restaurants and a variety of 70 shops and galleries. Find an internship at a multinational corporation, a non-profit organization or the Biotech Research Park.

Enjoy the Salem Lake “greenway” within walking distance – an excellent place to bike, boat or jog. Take a trip to the North Carolina mountains or beach within easy driving distance.

Meet guys and girls from the three other universities in the city – Wake Forest, Winston-Salem State and UNC School of the Arts.
