Wheaton College Summer Institute Residential Experience

Spend Two Weeks Living on the Beautiful Campus of Wheaton College

Wheaton College Sign in Spring

If you really want to know what college life is like, there's no better way to find out than to actually live on campus.

At the Wheaton College Summer Institute (WCSI), we believe that what happens in the classroom is just one aspect of the unique educational experience you'll receive through our program. The residence life experience — from meeting new friends in campus housing to enjoying our award-winning campus dining together — and the Christian community you join here will enhance your learning and growth outside the classroom.

Residence Halls
