Asian/Asian American House (AAA) is an open place for all members of the Wesleyan community to cultivate a continual awareness and interest of Asian and Asian American histories, literature, tradition, contemporary experiences, and concerns. The members of AAA cooperate to identify and redefine their individual experiences through the resources of their housemates and the house itself. Recognizing its legacy as an institution that was gained through the struggles of those who came before, AAA House will provide a safe space for the Wesleyan community to organize, reflect, communicate, and act. AAA House will build solidarity and a stronger community base of Asian/Asian Americans and broaden the sense of solidarity with other people of color.
Housing built before 1978 may contain lead-based paint. Lead from paint, paint chips, and dust can pose health hazards if not taken care of properly. Lead exposure is especially harmful to young children and pregnant women. Before renting pre-1978 housing, landlords must disclose the presence of known lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards in the dwelling. Tenants must also receive a Federally approved pamphlet on lead poisoning prevention. The pamphlet may be viewed at: http://www.hud.gov/offices/lead/library/enforcement/pyf_eng.pdf. The University recognizes that any housing built prior to 1978 may contain lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards. By accepting your housing contract, you are affirming that you have reviewed the pamphlet Protect Your Family from Lead In Your Home.
All Wesleyan housing was built before 1978 with the exception of the following: Bennet Hall, Fauver Apartments, 19 Fountain Avenue, 20 Fountain Avenue, 25 Fountain Avenue, 231 Pine Street, and 14 Warren Street.
