Living On Campus

Nebraska Wesleyan’s campus includes a variety of residential facilities designed to actively engage you in the life of the campus, broaden your life experiences, and enhance your interaction with other students.

First year residential living

Living on campus is a significant learning experience in a residential liberal arts college. Students who live on campus are often better connected to the University because of the community that is created and developed by the students on their floor, pod or building. Residential students learn critical life skills from living with others. To assist in building a community, professional educators and Peer Assistants staff all first year buildings in addition to the Heim/White Suites. Through programs, service opportunities and informational resources, they also teach skills that help residents learn to live and study together in the halls. Their role is to assist each resident in becoming more assertive, understanding of diverse perspectives, lifestyles and experiences, learning how to resolve conflicts in a civil manner, developing individual identity as a person of worth, developing healthy relationships, and becoming a citizen leader.

Typically, first year students live in the traditional halls and returning students live in the suite-style facilities and townhouses.

Our housing options include:

Residence Halls

Our traditional residence halls—one all-women and four coeducational—provide a variety of living arrangements to suit the needs and preferences of students. All are furnished and have wireless internet service. In addition, each facility provides a central living area with a community TV/lounge, laundry rooms, and kitchenettes.


Heim and White Suites are air-conditioned, suite-style, residential facilities for sophomores and juniors. Typically housing four students, these suites consist of a central living space with a kitchenette that includes a small refrigerator and microwave, two bedrooms and bathrooms. On each floor, there’s a lounge with a TV, pool table, foosball, computers, and study tables. The first floor has a small kitchen and a patio that provides space for outside lounging.


The Townhouse Village offers independent living in 30 four-person, air-conditioned units. Each unit has four furnished private bedrooms and two bathrooms. The townhouse comes equipped with a 21 cubic-foot refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and full-size, stackable washer and dryer.

Student Apartments

Our student apartments are air-conditioned, residential facilities for juniors and seniors only. Each apartment typically houses two students. Some are efficiency apartments and many have one or two bedrooms. The apartments remain open for Fall, Winter and Spring break for their residents without an additional break housing fee.

Greek Living

Students who are active members in good standing have the option of living in a sorority or fraternity chapter house after two full semesters in a residence hall with the permission of the dean of students in collaboration with each chapter president. The Greek system is self-governed, yet professional staff advisor(s), chapter advisors and live-in chapter directors/parents assist students and individual chapters with the challenges of living and learning in Greek chapter houses. Greek houses meeting appropriate standards are considered approved campus housing. Copies of “Approval of Greek Chapters as Approved University Housing,” including the standards, and “Procedure for Greek Chapter Houses to Fulfill University Residency Policy” are available in the Center for Student Involvement and Residential Education office. See Greek Life for more information about Greek living.
