The 2017-18 Housing Selection process opened December 1st.   Please read the information below and email if you have any questions.

We know that housing selection comes with lots of questions to help we’ve compiled answers to some of the most common questions.

  1. We are excited to introduce Gender Inclusive Housing as a housing option for upperclassman starting Fall 2017.  This means you choose who you live with – independent of gender. 
  2. We are excited to offer TERM HOUSING to students who will be going on project for a term during the 2017-2018 academic year.  TERM HOUSING will be in our Residential Houses (22 Schussler/26 Hackfeld).  Students will reside in the house during terms not on project, completely move out of the house during the term away (including all belongings), and not be charged for housing for the term they are not at WPI.  Please refer to the Housing Selection Timeline for deadlines and contact Residential Services if you are interested to reserve a space in TERM HOUSING.
  3. You are not required to be on a meal plan if you live in Ellsworth, Fuller, East, Faraday, Salisbury Estates, 22 Schussler or 26 Hackfeld, but it is encouraged to choose a residential or commuter meal plan while living in these areas.
  4. Internet service (speed and reliability) on campus is something that is regularly cited as a huge perk from students that choose to move off campus.
  5. If you live in WPI housing you never have to worry about paying your roommates rent if they bail on you.
  6. Student satisfaction surveys have shown that students feel much safer living on campus, where card access is required to get into buildings or apartments.
  7. Residential Services has many opportunities both online and in person for you to find people to fill in your groups.  Make sure to be proactive throughout the process to find the amount of people that fit the space size you would like to live in.  Check the calendar below for upcoming events. 
  8. Upperclass residents will once again enjoy residential parking lots close to their buildings. Faraday residents have a dedicated parking lot adjacent to the building.
  9. In housing selection, we have close to 1000 upperclass spaces available on campus, which means if you want housing, there is a very good chance an accommodation you desire will be available to you through the selection process.
  10. There is no risk to sign up for housing selection. You are only billed if you or your group leader select housing during selection week.

Why Live on Campus?

Did you know research suggests students who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, do better in class, and are more likely to graduate? That’s just one of 10 reasons to #LIVEWPI!
