University spokeswoman Lori Doyle explained that filming would tentatively begin around June 12 with scenes using the exterior of the Quad.
According to Doyle, the extensive project is expected to involve about 200 people, 25 tractor-trailer trucks and cranes.
"They have their own landscaping people, they bring in their own catering, it's a huge operation," she said.
In addition, scenes will be shot at Psi Upsilon Tau fraternity house, better known as "The Castle," and possibly on Locust Walk and Spruce Street, Doyle said.
Director Michael Bay was Undergraduate Senior Vice-President of Wesleyan University's Psi Upsilon chapter during his time in college.
Due to plot confidentiality, the University was not allowed to divulge any further information regarding the actual filming sequences, but it will be interesting to see how use of a Fraternity house will be portrayed in the film and whether or not 'Sam' will be in a fraternity.
