Welcome to WPI

Welcome to WPI, Class of 2027!

So, what was it?

You know, the thing that sealed the deal, that made it clear WPI is the place for you. The immersive STEM education, maybe, or the project-based curriculum? There’s also the chance to live and work in a bustling college city like Worcester and the fabulous assortment of goat puns (you’re welcome, by the way). Or maybe it’s the community that feels like a family.


Whatever the reason, we’re thrilled that you made the decision to join us. We know you’re probably a lot of things right now—excited, relieved, maybe even a little anxious—and have just as many questions to go along with those emotions. We’ll have more details for you soon, so be sure to keep an eye on your mailbox for information about our First-Year Welcome Experiences and check back for updates as you Get Ready to join the herd. In the meantime, though, start connecting with your future classmates and exploring life at WPI, all right here, all right now.

Congratulations, Class of 2027—we can’t wait to meet you!

First-Year Welcome Experience

Worth 1,000 Words

What’s WPI like? Well, from the band practices and snowball fights on the Quad to the completion of groundbreaking research and regular visits from President Leshin’s dog, Hudson, it’d be more accurate to ask, what isn’t WPI like? Get a glimpse of life at WPI through the latest installment of our Month in Photos series.

Project Based Learning in Action

We’re all about learning through doing at WPI, whether that’s through projects on campus, out in the community, in a nearby lab...or on international TV. Read more about Team Ribbot and how project-based learning was front and center in their experience competing on the latest season of BattleBots.

Ready, Set, Get Involved!

Thinking about joining a co-curricular activity? It helps you to meet new people, share your talents and interests, and you may even discover a newfound passion. WPI has over 235 student organizations; when you arrive on campus, check out the activities fair and see if there’s a club or two that you’d be interested in becoming a part of.

Connect on UniBuddy

You don’t have to wait until August to meet your future classmates! Start connecting with fellow members of the Class of 2027 (as well as current WPI students) on the UniBuddy app and get to know other members of the herd! Find out more about what's happening on campus, we're also on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Planning for The First-Year Experience

Looking for an idea of what you can expect when it comes to New Student Orientation and other to-dos leading up to move-in day? The First-Year Experience website gives you just that. Check it out for an in-depth look at the Class of 2026’s timeline to campus and we'll be updating information for the Class of 2027 over the summer.

Discover Worcester

You can’t have WPI without “Worcester,” and much like its pronunciation, the city we call home is more than meets the eye. It’s a place full of history, ready and waiting to act as the backdrop for you to make some of your own (and enjoy some food, art, and shows along the way). See more about our hometown.
