The Office of Residence Life offers 17 spots in the intentional community at Wesley Downtown, located at 908 Massachusetts Ave, NW behind Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church. Seventeen students (or up to 15 students and 2 student spouses) write a covenant together and hold each other accountable to it. Guided by the Wesley Downtown mentor, the intentional community students participate in family meals and worship as they live their studies in ministry in the heart of D.C.
Rooms are configured as four triplets, which consist of one double-occupancy dormitory room connected to a single-occupancy dormitory room through the bathroom, two one-bedroom apartments, and one efficiency with independent kitchens and bathrooms.
To qualify for campus housing at the intentional community, students must commit to living in intentional community and a twelve-month contract.
Married couples without children are eligible for a one-bedroom apartment in the Wesley Downtown facility, but non-student spouses must agree to be fully participating members of the intentional community.
Currently couples with children are not eligible for housing at Wesley Downtown. Intentional community students must carry at least five hours of credit during the fall or spring semesters. There is no registration requirement for permanent residents at Wesley Downtown wishing to remain during summer months.
