65 Lawn Avenue

German Haus has a mission to inform the larger Wesleyan community of current events in Germany; to provide a venue for cross-cultural exchange at Wesleyan; to promote the pursuit of German studies; to promote German language and culture; to provide a space for German conversation hours and to facilitate communication between Wesleyan’s German department, visiting German students, and the greater student body.

Residents are expected to be open and willing to speak German regularly when in the house and to enter into the housing contract with a preliminary knowledge of the language. That being said--a year of German at the college level is absolutely enough to prepare a student to live in the house.


Lead Paint Disclosure

Housing built before 1978 may contain lead-based paint. Lead from paint, paint chips, and dust can pose health hazards if not taken care of properly. Lead exposure is especially harmful to young children and pregnant women. Before renting pre-1978 housing, landlords must disclose the presence of known lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards in the dwelling. Tenants must also receive a Federally approved pamphlet on lead poisoning prevention. The pamphlet may be viewed at: http://www.hud.gov/offices/lead/library/enforcement/pyf_eng.pdf. The University recognizes that any housing built prior to 1978 may contain lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards. By accepting your housing contract, you are affirming that you have reviewed the pamphlet Protect Your Family from Lead In Your Home.

All Wesleyan housing was built before 1978 with the exception of the following: Bennet Hall, Fauver Apartments, 19 Fountain Avenue, 20 Fountain Avenue, 25 Fountain Avenue, 231 Pine Street, and 14 Warren Street.
