What to Bring To College

Your dorm room needs to function just like home. It needs to be a bedroom, a living room, a study, and have lots of storage space. It can be a warm and inviting space where everyone wants to hang out. Make it your own little spot of heaven on earth.

Life on Campus

If you don't find your niche in any of the clubs and organizations on campus, you can create your own! It is easy to do and is a great way to refine your leadership skills and make new friends who share your interests.

Living on campus is an essential experience that is extremely important to both the curricular and co-curricular life of students. Wesleyan is proud to be a residential college that offers a variety of housing options for all students ranging from traditional residence halls to apartment style living. We are excited that you have chosen Wesleyan College for the next step in your educational career and want to share the residential living experience with you. 

The Residence Life Team is committed to providing exemplary service to its residents. Our mission is to offer a safe, comfortable living environment that is conducive to academic and social development. You will find that students treat their college room just like they would their home by filling their rooms with decorations, photos from home, and personal belongings to assist them throughout the year.

To help you navigate Wesleyan College and residential living, we have hired 12 upperclass women who serve as resident advisors. Your resident advisor will assist you in getting acquainted with Wesleyan, adjusting to life away from home, and will plan educational and social programming for the members of your community.

Roommate Selection and Matching

Newly admitted and deposited students will complete the Wesleyan College Housing Application via Wesportal with their Wesportal login credentials in your "Welcome to Wesleyan" email. This form includes questions about students’ living habits, hobbies, and personalities, as well as preferred building and floor. Using this information, the Office of Residence Life matches students with roommates who have similar preferences and interests. Students who know who they would like to live with may also select their preferred roommate on this form.

Parking on Campus

All students are allowed to have cars on campus (parking is free) but must abide by the parking and traffic regulations enforced by Campus Security.

Meal Plan Options

All residential students are provided a meal plan. The Anderson Dining Hall and Hurdle Cafe located in the Olive Swann Porter building serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Saturday and brunch and dinner on Sundays.

Calendar of Events

Wesleyan College is privileged to steward many arts and cultural events and share them with the community. Most are free and open to the public. Wesleyan art galleries are open M-F 1-5PM and on Wesleyan Market Saturdays from 10AM-2PM.
