Campus Living Options: Choices & Flexibility
More than 75% of Illinois Wesleyan students live on campus. There are many options
— from traditional halls that provide a supportive, inclusive environment to apartment-style
housing for junior & senior students who desire more independence.
Traditional residence halls provide students with opportunities to interact and build
relationships with a large, diverse group of peers, while still maintaining close
ties with a smaller group of floormates.
Suite-style residence halls allow students the privacy and independence of individual
bedrooms that open into a shared living space. Suites are open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
The Gates at Wesleyan and East Street Apartments, reserved for juniors and seniors, provide residential living options that combine the best of campus housing with
a developing independence.
Affinity & Theme Housing
Illinois Wesleyan also offers theme housing for residents to join. Blackstock Hall will be an Arts community for the 2020-2021
school year which housings theatre, music, and arts students.
For the 2021-2022 academic year, we have two affinity housing options, Josephine Mabel
Jackson (JMJ) and the Rainbow Floor in Pfeiffer Hall. JMJ will be housed in Kemp Hall.
