Why live on campus?
Living on campus is a major part of the WPI experience. Our residence halls offer much more than just a place to study and sleep. This is where you’ll explore the richness of your passions, realize your potential, and make an impact. This is where you’ll meet new people at the center of a dynamic community that supports your academic and social growth. Do homework together. Watch a new movie. Collaborate and discover. Sleep in. Eat dinner while watching the sun set over the athletics field. Live and learn.
