Housing for Single Students
Single students have the most on-campus housing options of all our campus residents. Read below to explore them.
The New Residence Hall opened August 17, 2013 and offers a total of 76 beds in both single and double occupancy configurations. Suites consist of two double occupancy dormitory rooms sharing bathroom facilities or two single occupancy dormitory rooms sharing bathroom facilities. All suites are assigned according to gender - there are no co-ed suites.
All NRH rooms feature low-pile carpet tiles, are furnished, and come with window blinds. Furnishings include: an extra long twin bed with under-bed drawer located at the foot, desk with hutch, bulletin board and desk lamp, rolling task chair, night table, and armoire with adjustable rods and full-length mirror.
All NRH residents must purchase the meal plan for the seminary dining room each fall and spring semester. Wesley does not currently offer a meal plan during the summer terms.
Residents have access to a community kitchen on each floor of the building, as well as a comfortable television lounge. There are ample study spaces in the building, as well as an indoor bike rack, and small community storage room. The building offers a vending machine room, two laundry rooms, and has Wi-Fi throughout.
All utilities and wireless internet are included in the per-term price of on-campus housing. On-campus parking is available to residents who can make arrangements for a parking permit in the business office.
All apartments are furnished, carpeted and have window drapes. Wesley furniture and drapes are not permitted to be removed from campus apartments, and therefore cannot be stored. If you are planning on bringing additional furniture items, please consult the floor plans to ensure your items will fit in your apartment.
Carroll apartments include wall-unit air conditioners (user-controlled) and baseboard heaters (building-controlled). The campus and residence halls are configured for wireless internet and stoves are electric. The seminary participates in a recycling program and student residents utilize trash and recycling receptacles in the Wesley parking lot. Students may elect to participate in land-line phone service for a monthly fee. All other utilities are included in rental rates.
One of the greatest conveniences about living on campus is the security that house-related maintenance is never on our students’ to-do lists. Whether it’s a bathroom light that needs to be replaced or a problem with your sink disposal, Facilities assistance is only an email away!
Campus mailboxes are available to Carroll Residents (key deposit required), as are coin-operated washers and dryers, large community deep-freezers, and small storage units (approximately 4’x4’x4’). Carroll Residence Hall also has a small playground, best suited for children ages 3-8. Basic cable channels can be accessed digitally, or students may elect to watch television or movies on Wesley’s large-screen satellite cable TV located in the Welliver Lounge of Straughn Dormitory.
Students may park one vehicle (car or motorcycle) on campus by obtaining a parking permit from the Business Office. Parking permits for second vehicles may be obtained with an additional fee. Many of our campus residents do not bring vehicles to seminary but instead take advantage of the efficient public transportation options available here. Wesley Seminary is approximately 1 mile from the Tenleytown metro stop (Red Line), and students may access the American University shuttle, just a short distance away instead of walking. There are also several metro bus stops very nearby.
If this sounds like a good fit for you, please use the permanent resident housing application. If you have any additional questions or would like to schedule an appointment to view a room or apartment (dependent on availability), contact the Office of Residence Life.
