Subject: Program Housing Announcement

 

Dear Students,

The housing selection process for the 2016-17 academic year begins this weekend as Wesleyan’s program houses open their doors for our annual “House Hopping Day” this Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.  I hope that you will make use of this opportunity to explore Wesleyan’s variety of theme/interest houses.

There are several important changes for you to be aware of as program housing selection begins.  I’m happy to report that Psi Upsilon (242 High Street) will return to program housing for next year, and will be participating in House Hopping Day. Buddhist House has chosen the new name of Middle House, and has rewritten its mission statement. I regret to report that due to judicial sanctions Eclectic has lost program housing status effective at the end of this semester and will not be an option for students next year.  (Of course, Eclectic may continue as a non-residential organization.)  Music House (currently at 230 Washington Street) will relocate to 200 High Street for the coming year, which will enable 200 High to continue as a vital social space on campus. In the fall, I will work with the Undergraduate Residential Life Committee and the WSA to determine future use of the house. Finally, 184 High and 276 High will continue to be off limits to Wesleyan students this summer and next year.

Please note that applications for the first round of program housing are due Wednesday, February 17th at noon.

Sincerely,

Fran Koerting
Director of Residential Life
