Campus Life & Activities

Discover yourself at Wellesley College this summer. Famous for its beautiful campus setting and unique campus culture, Wellesley is an incredible place to learn and live. Students will participate in social activities both at Wellesley College and throughout the Boston area. Excursions are designed to help participants explore the city of Boston, get to know other students, and build a strong community.

Living Together at Wellesley

You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff who live together in one residence hall. 

Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a group project, it’s great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your Resident Counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.

Here's Our Set-Up:

  • Live in a single, double, or triple room with communal bathrooms.
  • Rooms includes a bed, study desk, closet, and Wifi.
  • Dining hall, lounges, laundry facilities, and the Residential Director's office are all in our residence hall.
  • Live a short walk from academic buildings and the Wellness Center. Did we mention that Starbucks and J.P. Licks are right down the street?

Delicious All-You-Can-Eat Dining On Campus

Enjoy three meals every weekday and two on weekends, while on campus. Choose from daily options that include pizza, sandwiches, grill station, and salad bar. Are you a vegetarian? Do you have food allergies? Special diets are not a problem.

Your Health + Safety are our Primary Concern

Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Wellesley College students. Daily sign-ins are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus and "The Vil" (our ‘home area’) in small groups. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.

Not feeling well? Residential staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with Wellesley College Health Center, Urgent Care, or the Newtown-Wellesley Hospital.
