Illinois Wesleyan University is an independent, residential, liberal arts university.
Students who wish to apply for Off-Campus housing must meet one of the following guidelines:
- Live six semesters in University-approved housing: residence halls, Greek chapter
houses, or semesters abroad
- Over the age of 22
- Be primary guardian for a child
- Living locally with parents
- Extreme medical conditions (permission and documentation necessary through the Office
of Student Accessibility Services and ORL)
In any of these cases, permission must be obtained through the Office of Residential
Life (and/or Student Accessibility Services) by completing an online request form
in MyHousing and further documentation may be required for some claims. For students
requesting to commute/live locally with parents, this form also needs to be completed and returned to ORL.
Applications are available through the student's MyHousing Portal and approval will
be granted on an ongoing basis, beginning in December each year. Failure to complete
an off-campus request or renewal by the stated deadline will result in a $250 late
notification charge. For students who choose live off-campus, financial aid is usually
limited to tuition and fees.
