2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus but the things I heard, the housing needs to be worked on more.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most housing is very close to classes but are not very spacious. A very small amount of thing are actually allowed in your room (maybe a coffee maker, kettle, and some other stuff) and cleanliness is an issue mostly left for the students to deal with. For most dorms, there is only one kitchen with one fridge and stove for the whole building to share. You don't feel like you get the most out of your money especially since you have to stay on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Wesleyan is a very old school with not many new amenities, but I feel the learning experience outweighs the housing situations.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The common areas are horrible and need to be redone. I am sure they have not furnished since the 1940's! And to my surprise, there is not a student center!!!!!!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is depend on where do you live. Apartment is awesome. Wortham and Person and good as well. Avoid Jones!

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.
