Wellesley guarantees four years of housing, and most students can't think of a reason to live anywhere else. Students question whether it's possible to really be a part of campus life and live somewhere else, and it is true that a large part of the Wellesley experience is chance chats in the dining hall that turn into long conversations, all-house meetings that go on way too long, or study breaks organized by RAs. There are a variety of dorm-related activities, and although first-year students may seem perky and annoying to the jaded senior, having all years living together is beneficial to everyone.
However, some students do decide to move off campus—some to live with significant others, others because they feel suffocated by the on-campus atmosphere—and fare well. Commuting from Boston can be a hassle, but there is some affordable housing available in Natick and Framingham. The Housing Office posts availabilities on a bulletin board, but there are no college-owned apartments off campus or centralized services for students searching for off-campus housing.
