You belong here.

Here, you can be yourself, no questions asked. This is a place that embraces the nerd in all of us, where curiosity is its own reward and where deep learning is the height of cool.

Here, inclusion is more than an aspiration; it’s a daily practice. Honoring difference is more than an idea; it’s a way of life that makes us stronger.

Here, we open ourselves to new perspectives and experiences in order to think deeply about the world we want to live in.

We are a uniquely diverse learning community—and a campus bursting with life—where you will have once in a lifetime opportunities.

what’s it like Living on Campus As one of the most diverse educational communities in the country, we lift each other up.

Conversations that last through the night. Impromptu jam sessions. Meals with people you care about. That’s what happens when you’re surrounded 24/7 by people who dream as big as you do.

  • Where to live

    Each residence hall is a thriving community, complete with an energy and personality all its own, shaped by those who live and learn there.

  • Where to eat

    The food at Wellesley is fresh, sustainably sourced, often creative, always inspired, and meets every need. Kosher? Gluten-free? Have a nut allergy? You’re covered.
