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 floor-, wing- or suitemates.
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.
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.
