Living On Campus

Welcome Home

Living on campus is a wonderful opportunity and can be an great experience for many students. We want your residence hall to become your home away from home. We believe that a residence hall should provide a sense of community, friendship, growth, learning outside the classroom, leadership opportunities, and fun. Our hope is that living on campus provides you with an experience you can look back on and realize how much you have learned and grown, both academically and socially.

Residence Halls

The Office of Residential Services is committed to the principle that learning at college takes place both in and out of the classroom. On the basis of this living and learning philosophy, the residence halls are a vital part of the collegiate experience and are at the center of students' day-to-day life.

Get Involved

The key element to a successful on-campus residential experience is the willingness to get involved. You can have an impact on the direction of your hall, and WPI, through your participation in activities and leadership opportunities. The programs and activities in the halls are designed to promote interaction among residents, assist students in meeting each other, offer students an opportunity to learn about a variety of topics, and help students learn more about themselves and each other.

We encourage you to make the most of your residential experience by accepting the challenge and responsibility of being an active and concerned resident.
