Not many Wesleyannes live off campus, as the school encourages students to reside in the dorms and apartments on campus. The students who do live off campus are generally nontraditional students, students who live with a close relative nearby, or students who are married or pregnant.
Not having off-campus housing options is both a burden and a blessing. Because most people live on campus, this arouses a sense of unity and community. However, many students feel that being forced to live on campus is a pain in that the room and board fees consistently go up every year, burning a hole through their pockets. Plus, the dorms aren't necessarily up-to-date when it comes to having wireless access and other amenities.
