Welcome class of 2020

Welcome to Wheaton! To help you quickly settle in and find your way around campus, here are 6 quick facts with links to more information for getting started at Wheaton:

Wallace Library

The Wallace Library is your main place to study, socialize, do group work, and access your academic materials (e.g. your class reserves). You can also borrow from HELIN, a group of 10 libraries that includes Wheaton.

Picking up and sending mail

Mail and packages can be picked up & sent at the campus mail room, which is located in the basement of the Balfour-Hood center.

Getting essential software

We have everything you need to get started. You'll probably need Microsoft Office ASAP; Wheaton has an arrangement with Microsoft that allows students to download and use it for free.


There are many public printers available across campus; the biggest collection is in the library. It's easiest to print from a public computer, but you can print from your personal computer. More

Getting a computer

We strongly recommend that you have your own laptop; fortunately, we have arrangements with Dell and Apple that can get you attractive student discounts

By the way, Library and Information Services (LIS) manages the Library, digital technology, and the campus mail and copy centers.

Need a Job?

LIS is also a major source of student employment on campus; see our student employment page for more information
