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.

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 Department of Residence Life 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 15 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 receive the Wesleyan College Housing Application with their admission packets. 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.
