At Wesleyan, you get better and better housing each year. Freshmen are in dorms, which are mostly identified by the type of person who tends to live in them. Organized from "Most Jocky" to "Most Hipster," the dorms include: Fauver, Clark, "The Butts," "The Nics," 200 Church Street, and "WestCo." With that being said, the stigmas and stereotypes attached to each dorm shift each year, with only the two most extreme (Fauver and WestCo) remaining purely "jock" and "hipster." Fauver has the best facilities, but all of the dorms come with a bed, desk, bookshelf, dresser, and closet, and none of them are unbearably gross or small.
Sophomores live in dorms (The Butts, The Nics, WestCo, and Hewitt) or program houses, which are houses that are dedicated to a theme—such as "Community Service House," "Earth House," "Out House" (shared love of the outdoors—and puns), and "German Haus." Some lucky sophomores even get apartments. Juniors and seniors live in apartments and wood-frame houses (the highlight of Wesleyan's housing situation). You can live in a house with a few of your friends, or depending on the size of the house, all by yourself! This makes for a fun incentive to stick it out until senior year.
