Summer @ Wellesley does not provide transportation for students from the airport, train station, or elsewhere. One company with whom we have worked for many years is JFK Transportation, which has an excellent safety record. Please note that students and parents are responsible for making their own arrangements for pick-up, drop-off, and payment.
Summer program students have full access to Wellesley’s classrooms, laboratories, on-campus cafes and dining halls, libraries (with borrowing privileges), computer labs and the Campus Center when they are open.

In order to create an environment conducive to intellectual pursuit and individual well-being, all residents should refrain from creating inordinate or unnecessary noise. Courtesy is expected at all times. Noise, including music, should be confined to an individual’s room. Residents should be aware of the effect their noise has not only for their roommates and neighbors, but for people who live above and below them as well.
Quiet hours for purposes of study and sleep are set, lasting from 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. on Sunday through Thursday. Quiet hours begin at midnight on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Students of Contemporary Women's Leadership program may choose to commute off-campus independently (for example, to Boston) during free time, at their will. Students may seek recommendations on restaurants, local events, etc. from the residential life staff.
During free time, students of Pre-College programs can stay on campus, or travel to the Wellesley Ville independently. However, they are prohibited from travelling beyond the Ville outside program-planned outings. Please contact residential life staff for information on independent travels off campus for special circumstances.
The College strictly prohibits unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol and/or related containers or paraphernalia in the Pre-College Program. The Wellesley Pre-College program expects that students enrolled in Pre-College will not use illicit drugs and/or alcohol. Those who choose to partake in such activities will be subject to disciplinary action, which may include immediate expulsion from the program. Any student expelled from the program will not receive any refund and will be responsible for any additional costs incurred. Please refer to the Program Handbook for information on disciplinary action.
