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 floor-, wing- or suitemates.

Suite-style 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.

Theme communities

In these communities, students share common interests and values. Theme communities are housed in smaller living units that offer residents the chance to grow close with other members, provide theme-related hall and campus programming and maintain a character consistent with the liberal arts tradition.

Apartment-style housing

The Gates at Wesleyan and East Street Apartments provide residential living options that combine the best of campus housing with a developing independence. Reserved for juniors and seniors, apartment-style housing options can be paired with the Block 75 commuter meal plan to maintain convenient access to campus dining services.
