Wilder Guest House welcomes guests of Illinois Wesleyan and its faculty, staff and
students. Alums are welcome when present for University business.
The guest facility is an historic, two-story house containing a living room, dining
room and kitchen on the first floor, with private sleeping rooms on the first and
second floors. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. The living room has a television.
The bathrooms (one on the first floor/one on the second floor) are common areas which
are shared between guests and are provided with locks for privacy.
In times of crisis or emergency, the facility is used to meet institutional needs,
and therefore, the right to cancel or modify reservations that conflict with greater
institutional needs is reserved at all times in all cases.
While Illinois remains in Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, Wilder House reservations
will be limited to two (2) family units per day (one per bathroom), and no less than
3 business days between reservations. Our reduced capacity will limit the number
of reservations we can take this fall and spring, and we apologize if we are unable
to accommodate your request!
All guests must wear masks while on campus, including in the common areas of the Wilder
House. We request you monitor your symptoms and cancel your reservation should you
feel ill with a fever, cough, sore throat or any other symptom listed by the CDC at
Finally, a waiver will be required to be signed prior to your arrival on campus; check
in materials will not be prepared until the signed waiver is received. Thank you!
