Relocation and Housing
Wesleyan Mortgage Program
Wesleyan provides first mortgage assistance on residential properties for the purpose of supporting and encouraging professional librarians on at least three-quarters time appointments (excluding visitors and retired librarians) to secure home ownership within reasonable commuting distance of the campus, subject to the conditions set forth below.
Wesleyan Rental Program
Wesleyan owns and maintains a limited amount of rental housing units near the campus for the purpose of providing transitional living space for newly appointed professional librarians who relocate at the time of their initial appointment at the university.
Professional Librarians Relocation Policy
Newly appointed professional librarians may be eligible for relocation expenses if they meet the IRS minimum distance requirement. The current requirement is a change in job location that increases one-way commuting distance from the old residence by at least 50 miles. Please refer to your appointment letter for details regarding your eligibility.
