Wells College is a 94% residential campus with most residential buildings either on campus or within easy walking distance to campus. There are 5% full or part-time commuter students, who are not afforded campus housing, so it is assumed that these students drive to campus. Unless approved as a commuter student, 94% of full-time students live in campus-affiliated housing as there are few nearby non-college-affiliated apartments or affordable housing options. The off-campus residential house (Mandel House), while a half-mile from campus, has full village sidewalk access to campus; students in that residence walk to campus. The off-campus apartment building (Fairlane) is located directly adjacent to the main campus, so also has easy sidewalk access to campus; students in that house walk to campus.
Through our participation in the Finger Lakes Rideshare Coalition, we provide access to the Zimride ridematching platform for commuter students to find one another for shared rides. Some of our off-campus resident students are the children of employees, so may commute to school with their working parents.
