Residential Services is committed to the principle that learning at college takes place both in and out of the classroom. Our residence halls are a vital part of this living-learning philosophy and are the center of students’ day-to-day lives.
- Daniels Hall is chosen by many students because of its central location on the Quad, making trips to class, laboratories, and the Campus Center quick and convenient.
- The most recently renovated residence hall on campus, Morgan has game rooms for spending time with friends, an onsite dining hall, and laundry facilities located right next door.
- Institute Hall has a great sense of community—since the hall is smaller, you get a chance to know everyone and make many friends. The size of the building allows for camaraderie to occur naturally.
- As the first residence hall built at WPI, Sanford Riley offers a pleasant blend of tradition and modern comfort to its residents. The ground floor houses the Little Theatre - home to WPI's theatre troupe.
- Located on the corner of Institute and Einhorn Roads, Stoddard provides easy access to Morgan Dining Hall, the Quad, and Alumni Field—all essential elements of campus life at WPI.
- The state-of the-art building features recreation and fitness space, tech suites on each floor, and meeting rooms on the ground floor for group projects. It is air-conditioned, has wireless access, a parking garage, a courtyard, and a green roof.
- Living in the apartments offers students the chance to learn more about living on their own. Students who are ready to take on additional responsibilities often choose Ellsworth or Fuller.
- Founders Hall is a suite-style residence hall at WPI featuring kitchenettes. It’s a coed living space configured in 4 - 6 - 8-person suites.
- WPI has four on-campus themed houses. Students who apply to live in one of these houses choose their own theme for the house. Past themes have included Healthy Alternatives, World House, and Robotics House.

About the Residence Halls at WPI
Each residence hall at WPI has an environment that is unique. From state-of the-art green buildings to halls full of history and tradition, there's a hall to suit every taste. Depending on your interests, one living environment might be more attractive to you than another. One thing all the halls have in common is a sense of community defined by cooperation, a commitment to the welfare of the group, and a sense of responsibility to self and others.
Amenities in the Halls
All halls are wired for telephone, cable television, and data network services. The bedrooms contain beds, desks, desk chairs, and a closet or wardrobe. The floors in the rooms are carpeted and have window treatments. The exterior doors of all residence halls require a card key to enter. All our residence halls are smoke-free.
Resident Advisors live in the residence halls. They are the core of the residential life staff and are responsible for residents in a particular section or floor of a residence hall. Resident Advisors (RAs) are selected for their leadership skills, enthusiasm, organizational skills, maturity, and willingness to help others. They contribute a great deal to the living and learning community. RAs assist residents with social or personal concerns, answer questions about the campus, explain and enforce WPI policies, respond to emergency situations, submit work order requests, and are available when help is needed for any reason.
