Approximately 97% of Wheaton students reside within the 33 residential structures, either a traditional residence halls or in a theme house. In these vibrant living-learning environments, they study together, socialize, build lifelong friendships, and work through the issues associated with living in a diverse community. These residential structures include gender-inclusive restrooms, full-use kitchens, and laundry facilities.

All residence halls are staffed by Resident Advisors (RAs) who organize social events, faculty-led discussions, intramural teams, and programs. Wheaton’s campus is divided into 5 areas, or quads, and are overseen by full-time professional Residential Life Coordinators.

As a first-year student, residents will find a warm welcome in halls like Pine, Meadows, McIntire, Young, and Clark. Each of these halls is home to different Common Interest Communities (CICs), fostering a sense of belonging and shared interests. There are also Living Learning Communities (LLCs) such as Wheaton Wellness, First Generation, and the Service Learning Program, offering unique opportunities for academic and personal growth. If a student is intrigued by one of our 16 Theme Houses, they can apply to start the second semester of their first year. Click here for more information about CICs, LLCs, and Theme Houses.

Floor plans for residence halls can be found in the Campus Life Section of insideWheaton.
