Wesley is in the 8th district of Budapest, called Józsefváros or Josefstadt in German, it is the part of the city centre in the wider sense as one of the 18-19th century older suburbs, close to the city centre. The inner part of District 8 is becoming the new-cool part of Budapest. Increasingly more locals and plugged-in tourists find refuge in this peaceful neighbourhood lined with pretty pre-war residential homes as they escape the tourist-saturated Jewish Quarter just a few blocks away. The College has its own campus dormitory (see the link for further information and request for accommodation) with cheap accomodation possibilities for international students.
The college library is located in the College campus, offering a variety of diversified facilities for academic learning and research activities.
There is a Student Chaplaincy with a cosy little chapel in the campus. The chapel is open for all of the students and professors.

The vivid, ecumenical, or even interconfessional community is open to everyone.
