Mission Statement

The mission of WHSR is to create an inclusive community that provides low income affordable housing for disadvantaged and special needs students, while teaching nonviolence and offering mentoring, life skills and wellness programs that help students reach their fullest potential and a college degree at San Diego State University.


Wesley House Student Residence, Inc. (WHSR) is a public non-profit that represents the culmination of over 80 years of San Diego State University service and outreach. Since 2005, Wesley House Student Residence has assumed responsibility for Aztec Apartments, a two story building adjacent to the SDSU campus and has been providing affordable housing as well as multiple services and benefits for up to 34 students.

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.

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.
