Hello Transfer Students,
A hearty welcome to Wes to you all. I’ll be sending a bi-weekly email from this point forward to provide you with information that may be helpful. If you have questions or would like to chat, please schedule a Zoom meeting with me. Even if you don’t have questions, I’d love for us to get on a phone/zoom call sometime this summer before the end of August so we can get to know each other and chat about your goals here at Wes and beyond.
As you most likely know, campus housing is an integral part of the residential liberal arts college experience. While your studies are what bring you to Wesleyan and anchor your experiences here, the co-curricular opportunities that exist outside of the classroom in residence halls, campus houses, and other student spaces, will help to enhance your educational experience in profound ways. There are also student and full-time administrative residential staff who will support you during your journey here, specifically dedicated to housing transfer students.
Housing Preference Form
Please be sure to fill out the transfer housing preference form so that Residential Life can incorporate your preferences when making assignments. The University also provides services and accommodations to make our resources more accessible. Residential Life does try to house incoming transfer students near one another so that you’ll have a sense of community with one another.
- Submit your housing preference form through WesPortal by July 5
- Submit your disability notification and accommodation request form by July 5 to request accessibility services and explore potential accommodations.
On Campus Employment
I’m here to help you on this journey, so don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns. Remember to pace yourself as well; while college can be challenging, the bulk of the challenges should invigorate you, not drain you. Here is a quick video about transfer tips created by one of our peer advisors, Lila, also a transfer student at Wesleyan.
