The newly constructed wood frame houses were built with sustainability and energy conservation in mind. It is hoped that the residents who chose to live in these houses are energy conscious, and will respect the measures that have been incorporated into its design, rather than negate them. Such measures include high efficiency boiler and hot water heaters, thermostats that can be programmed differently for when the house is not occupied, energy efficient windows, energy star appliances, water conserving fixtures, and fluorescent interior light fixtures, to name just a few. 14 Warren and 25 Fountain use geothermal heating. To reduce carbon footprint, air conditioning will not be functional during the academic year, just as in all the older wood frames.
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.
