Named after Susanna Wesley, Wesley Hall is approaching her Centennial Year. The building, beloved by alumni and local residents alike, is our largest residence hall and houses most of our first-year students. A refresh project is currently underway to update the halls and care for this keystone of Briton tradition.

Wesley is a traditional-style residence hall with double-occupancy rooms and community bathrooms. Hallways are divided by single-gender, but some gender inclusive options may be available.

Living at Wesley

New students will complete a housing request form and a roommate matching form in their Briton Bound Account. Mutual roommate requests will be honored as space permits. Housing assignments for new students are completed in May and June.

Floor Plans and Room Dimensions

Each year, Wesley Hall and Seaton Hall will offer Theme floors dependent on the number of incoming first-year student that request them. You will be able to select one or more of these as your preference when you complete your Housing Request Form. Please be aware that selecting a Theme Floor on your Housing Request Form is only a preference and we cannot guarantee that you will be assigned to that specific floor/area.

  • Quiet Study Floor
  • Substance Free Floor
  • Honors Community (Seaton Hall)

Students in Wesley Hall must select 1 of 3 Residence Hall Block Plans. Please see the Dining Services page for more information.
