Ubuntu House

34 Lawn Avenue

Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term that means “humanity towards all”. We aim to extend humanity towards all through the sharing of our unique experiences and culture as students from the African continent, of the diaspora, and individuals eager to learn about the multitude of African affairs. Ubuntu house is not only a home for those who seek inclusivity and engagement with people and issues from the continent, it is also a symbol that Africa has visible representation within the diverse community of Wesleyan.

Lead Paint Disclosure

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.
