  • Overnight Stays

    Overnight visits for the 2017-18 school year may be requested after Monday, August 28.

    Join us for an overnight visit and experience Wesleyan from a student’s perspective. Join your host for dinner and independently attend class the next day. Prospective senior high school and transfer students will be hosted for one night by a Wesleyan student from Sunday through Thursday nights. The program operates mid-September through the end of November. Overnights are also available to transfer students during the month of February. Please notify the Office of Admission at least 2 weeks in advance of your interest in an overnight visit.

    April hosting is open for admitted students ONLY. Upon receipt of notification of admission admitted students may arrange for overnight stays by calling the Office of Admission.

    Students are asked to check-in at the reception desk in Admission with our Overnight Host Coordinator at 4:30 p.m. on the day of their visit. Students must bring the required Visitation Policy/Medical Permission Form when checking in at the Office of Admission. Overnight guests should bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, and funds for dining the following day.

    To arrange an overnight stay please call Loreen Carta at (860) 685-2974. You will need to provide your name, telephone number, and a major of interest.

    If you are being hosted independently with a Wesleyan student (not through the Office of Admission), you are required to properly register with the Public Safety Office.  Proper registration requires the submission of the Visitation Policy/Medical Permission Form directly to the Public Safety Office.
