Wesley House Student Residence, Inc. (WHSR) is a public, non-profit organization that represents the culmination of over 80 years of San Diego State University service and outreach.

WHSR is an innovative example of how an institution can assist college students, particularly low-income and first generation students succeed at the university. Facts evidence that the dropout rate for these students can be drastic, but with assistance and mentoring, they can graduate to have richer, more productive lives.   We’ve been providing affordable housing as well as multiple services and benefits for resident students since 2005.

WHSR’s historical namesake, John Wesley, believed the following as a rule to live by: “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” This is a rule that WHSR believes is important still today.
