Wheelock College is located in the Fenway, a vibrant area of Boston that is home to a wide variety of educational, cultural, and healthcare institutions. Our campus is just minutes from historic Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, and the beautiful Emerald Necklace, a series of contiguous parks designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted.
About a ten-minute walk from our main campus is our Brookline campus, featuring a stately, turn-of-the-century mansion that houses graduate classrooms, offices, and space for special events.
Wheelock's six residence halls—Longwood House, Peabody Hall, Pilgrim House, the Campus Center Student Residence building, Riverway House, and Colchester House—offer unique living environments. They vary in size, types of rooms, designations as co-educational or single-sex halls, and traditions. Each living environment is headed by professional Resident Directors and student Resident Assistants who represent and enforce the general philosophies and policies of the Office of Student Life. The unique characteristics of the halls are ensured through residence self-government, which allows house members to determine rules and regulations for their own community.
Rooms are either singles, doubles, triples, or quads, and each room in the residence halls is equipped with the following: a twin bed, a desk with a chair, dresser, blinds on the windows, an overhead light, smoke detectors, closet space (limited), and hook ups for cable TV. Each residence hall has some wireless connectivity—Riverway and the Campus Center Student Residence are entirely wireless, while the remaining residences have wireless connectivity in the common areas but require wired connection to the college network in the rooms. Each residence hall is smoke-free and has vending machines, television lounges with microwave ovens, and computer rooms. Laundry facilities are located in Peabody Hall, Riverway House, Pilgrim House (for residents of Pilgrim and Longwood), Campus Center Student Residence, and Colchester.
