Housing for First-Year Students
At WPI, life on campus begins in our residence halls. It won't feel exactly like home, though in some ways it will be even better.
Research shows nation-wide that living on campus in the first year of college can positively impact a student's ability to make connections with other students, take advantage of academic resources, and become involved in campus life. Additionally, students who live on campus in their first & second year graduate at a higher rate than those who do not.
Typical first-year residence halls include:
- Daniels Hall
- Founders Hall
- Institute Hall
- Messenger Hall
- Morgan Hall
- Sanford Riley Hall
- Stoddard Complex
- Trowbridge House
- Wachusett House
Note: Upperclass students (sophomores, juniors, and seniors) and graduate students may not live in first year residence halls.
