How do I find roommates?

  • There are a few different ways that first year students can find roommates, including: 
  • Roommate Meet & Greets – the Housing & Residential Experience Center will be hosting virtual meet and greets to give first-year students the chance to get to know each other and hopefully find a roommate. 
  • First-Year Welcome Experience – Offered both in person and virtually, these sessions are a great opportunity for first-year students to meet one another and learn about the different resources and opportunities WPI has to offer. 
  • StarRez - Within the housing portal, students will be able to complete a brief lifestyle questionnaire. Your responses will be visible to other students and StarRez will provide a percentage of compatibility based on how similarly you answered your questions.   
  • Discord – Using your WPI ID from your application, you now have access to the official class of 2028 discord server where you can meet and chat with other admitted students
