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 Halls

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.

Ferguson Hall & Munsell Hall (First-Year Students)
Gulick Hall (First-Year Students)

Suite Housing

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.

Kemp Hall  is one of our unique residences with singles, doubles, and triples.

Apartment Housing

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 2019-2020 school year which housings theatre, music, and arts students.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, we have one affinity housing option, Josephine Mabel Jackson (JMJ). There will also be one theme house, Theatre Arts. JMJ will be housed in Kemp Hall, and Theatre Arts will be in Blackstock Hall.
