Gender Neutral Housing Options

Wesleyan University assigns roommates for incoming students based on legal sex.  Students choose among the following three options on the housing preference form: 

  • to be assigned according to this policy,
  • to request an exception to this policy, or
  • to be available as a potential roommate for someone who has requested an exception. 

Gender neutral housing is available in all student residences, and after the first year, students are able to select who they want to live with regardless of legal sex.

Student housing at Wesleyan is designed so that first year students live together in residence halls near the center of campus.  Residential facilities vary by size, room type and ratio of first year to upperclass students.  In all locations, first year students comprise at least 50% of the residents.  All of the buildings are coed, however some halls offer single-sex floors. 

Please feel free to contact the Office of Residential Life by submitting a ResLife ticket through your WesPortal or by phone at 860-685-3550 if you have any questions.
