Program Housing is a unique living option offered to upperclassmen at Wesleyan.  It gives students the opportunity to live collectively in a house or hall, fraternity or society, based on shared hobbies, experiences, cultural interests and identities.  It also supports the creation of interwoven communities of interest that otherwise would not be as connected. Many program houses are not only tied to an academic department or student organization, but also very often provide outreach to the greater Middletown community.  The primary goal of each Program House is to provide unique educational and cultural, campus inclusive programming.  Each Program House maintains a direct connection to a Faculty or Staff Advisor who assists with student and house/campus program development.

The following is a list of the Program House/Hall & Fraternity/Society Faculty and Staff Advisors as well as House Managers.  For more specific information on house missions and programs as well as floor plans, or to contact a House Advisor or House Manager, you may click on the links below.

On a semesterly basis, the Office of Residential Life works with the Undergraduate Residential Life Committee (URLC), a subcommittee of the Wesleyan Student Assembly's Student Affairs Committee, to formally evaluate Program Housing in order to ensure that the needs and expectations of residents within our communities are being met.  Program House applications are available each spring semester during our housing selection process for residents interested in living in a Program House for the following academic year.
