4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms / housing areas are nice.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms on our campus are really small. We have no space, and the buildings are old so it has a weird smell. The janitors are rude and it sometimes looks like they do not even clean. The public showers are gross and flood easily. The hot water takes a long time to come in the winter. There is no heating in the bathrooms during the winter, so you freeze. The cost of the dorms is way too high for the low quality we get. However, I had great people on my hall so I had a lot of fun,

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Wesleyan's seven residence halls create a close-knit community that will last a lifetime. Resident advisers make each student feel welcome and develop hall programs in order for residents to better get to know each other. Decorations cover the lengths of every floor in the dorms, and a positive environment is nurtured with each group study session or movie party in rooms or lounges. The buildings themselves were built in the early and late 1900s, but their historical qualities are preserved by renovations and the hard work of the maintenance staff. Levels of cleanliness vary for each dorm because aside from Banks Hall residents, students are responsible for their own cleaning. That includes the community spaces, such as the kitchens or lounges, as well as their personal areas. One thing that students do not worry about, however, is walking distance. Wesleyan is a small campus, and students can conveniently walk or bike to class. Overall, the College's housing facilities are average, yet highly satisfactory.

Residence life is what each student makes of it. The corner rooms in dorm buildings may be the most spacious, but with a lounge on each floor, anyone has access to a larger study or social space. Plus, students living on campus are able to learn about different cultures, as they interact with international students on a regular basis.
