Prospective Students

Meet with Our Staff

We invite any students interested in WPI who may utilize Disability Services to meet with us to discuss our services and supports, disclosure process, housing accommodations, or to talk about any questions a student or their parents might have. We can meet with students as early as their junior year and encourage students to begin contact with us early and often as they apply to WPI and prepare to join our campus community as first-year students.  

If you plan to be on campus and would like to schedule an appointment to meet with us, please call ahead as early as you can to ensure staff availability!
