BERKELEY, California—Wesley House & Campus Center will celebrate its Grand Opening and Dedication this Sunday, September 26 from noon to 4 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m.

Wesley House & Campus Center, an outreach campus ministry of the United Methodist Church, is located across from the UC Berkeley campus at 2398 Bancroft Way. Wesley House features a green student housing community with capacity for 90 students.
 
The state-of-the-art four-story building consists of three floors of dorm apartments (including a deck and study), called "Wesley House," and a first-floor campus ministry called the "Campus Center."
 
The eight furnished suites include fully equipped kitchens with single-, double-, and triple-occupancy bedrooms. The Campus Center offers a multi-media room, student lounge and community kitchen, student art exhibit hall, and deck opening to the historical Wesley-Trinity Church courtyard.
 
"The mission of the Wesley Foundation is to create a spiritual student community with open hearts, open minds and open doors" said the Rev. Tarah Trueblood, Executive Director. "Wesley House & Campus Center is committed to providing a supportive and nurturing environment where students can live, study, and grow," she added.
 
Wesley Foundation is a non-profit, public benefit corporation serving students of any or no religious faith or spiritual orientation. Founded in 1925 as a campus ministry of the United Methodist Church, Wesley House's main focus is to develop a student housing community life and leadership while promoting values of justice, hospitality, service, and diversity.
