Butterfield Colleges

*Most bathrooms in the Butterfields are single use.

Housing both first year students and upper-class students in single, double, and triple-occupany rooms, the Butterfields present a unique opportunity for first-year students to live and become friends with students from other class years.  The Butterfields form a self-sufficient community with a local dining option (Summerfields), a large central courtyard, laundry rooms, common area kitchens and several study lounges.  

All Women Single Gender Floor (Butterfield C rooms 456-465)

The fourth floor of Butterfield C serves as the all women floor where students who identify as women can live on a floor that only houses other students of the same gender identity.  Students wanting to live in this community should note that men and male identified individuals do enter this space as part of their jobs duties, including but not limited to: Resident Advisors, Area Coordinators, Public Safety, and Physical Plant.


The Copenhagens are a unique living option for sophomore students.  Copenhagens house six sophomores and are comprised of 4 single-occupancy rooms and 1 double-occupancy room.  The students decide among themselves who will have the double-occupancy room.  Each Copenhagen will be responsible for planning and executing a community building activity each semester with their Resident Advisor (RA).  Copenhagens are not treated as separate housing units and do not have privileges different from the rest of the residents in the building.  Please note that Copenhagens are an application based housing option.  There is a total of 9 Copenhagens.  Example of a Copenhagen: Butterfield B, rooms 201-205

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:  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.
