The Boston Business Journal reported on the opening of WPI Seaport, a multipurpose space in Boston that will further WPI’s role in the state’s innovation economy. President Laurie Leshin was joined by several state and local officials, including Lt. Gov.

In August of 2018, WPI will open the Foisie Innovation Studio and Messenger Residence Hall, the future hub of WPI’s distinctive project-based approach to STEM higher education, and our first formal living/learning facility. The 78,000-square-foot building will guarantee that future generations of students have the physical space in which to immerse themselves in WPI’s distinctive brand of learning.
