Institute Hall

Embodying the essential characteristics of the WPI experience, Institute Hall is a small, close-knit, and friendly coed community. Lasting bonds take shape here, as students live and share with their peers in this collegial setting.

Home to just 90 students across four floors, Institute Hall offers singles, doubles, triples, and quads. The lower level includes a cozy study lounge with a flat-screen television, and their own laundry room.

Institute Hall is situated at the base of the Hill—a brisk walk to the center of campus and a stone’s throw from the Goat’s Head and the campus convenience store. These amenities, as well as the proximity of neighborhood shops and restaurants, add to Institute Hall’s appeal.

Wellness Community @ Institute Hall

WPI Office of Residential Services has designed  a community whose goal is to create an environment where students will be supported to make a commitment to keeping wellness a priority and abstaining from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. By creating a community that facilitates optimal health, we expect that students will enhance their learning potential and academic success.  

Why live in the Wellness Community? Wellness is important to your overall college success. This community will help you learn tips and strategies to support you throughout your college career.  Space in this program is limited. To apply, please indicate your interest on your first year housing application.If you have questions, email
