We are located at 406 Stewart Avenue, across the street from Rutledge outside the gates of campus.  If you’re coming down Oakland Avenue, turn right onto Stewart and we are on the corner of Stewart and Park Avenues.  We’re a brick building with a stained glass window of the world on the front.


The Wesley House 

Located at 508 Park Avenue right beside campus, The Wesley House offers a Christian living environment to upperclassmen during the summer and school year.  For more information contact Narcie.

WESLEY is the United Methodist Campus Ministry at Winthrop University.  Wesley welcomes students from all walks of life - those that grew up in the church, those searching, those that are a little in between.  Adjacent to campus, Wesley is not just a building, but a community of faith and support as students grapple with questions of vocation, identity, faith, and all the twists, turns and intricacies of college life.  Students are challenged here, nurtured here, and loved here, in a community that accepts you as you are - a child of God.  Wesley is a safe space where students can find a home away from home through worship, study, small groups, music, missions, outreach, fellowship and lots and lots of food.
