WPI offers housing to current students throughout the summer who are working on campus or are participating in a WPI affiliated program. Our goal is to offer summer housing that is affordable, convenient, and makes sense for students.

Application & Important Information

The summer housing application will be available at housing.wpi.edu/StarRezPortalX beginning in April. 

  • Current WPI students who are working on campus or are participating in a WPI affiliated program may apply for summer housing.
  • Summer housing dates: Monday, May 17 - Friday, August 6

  • All Summer Housing locations will have kitchens with ovens and refrigerators because meal plans are not available. Students must furnish their own pots, pans, dishes, silverware, etc. 

Summer Housing rates per night per person:

  • $30 single room
  • $25 double room
  • Students will be placed in single occupancy bedrooms unless you indicate a roommate preference.
  • Students will also have the opportunity to indicate an apartment mate preference (in the same apartment, not in the same bedroom).

 

Current on-campus students -  Residential students will remain in their current D term placement from academic year closing until their summer housing assignment is ready. You will be notified by Residential Services when you are able to move with specifics. Please be prepared to move to your summer assignment the week following commencement, if not earlier.   

Fall semester transition -  If you are staying through August and have an on-campus housing assignment for Fall, you will be notified by Residential Services when you are able to move with specifics.  Please be prepared to move into your Fall assignment in the beginning of August.  Transitions may occur as early as the last weekend of July.

 

Summer Housing Experience

Summer housing is not just a place to sleep during the summer, but provides residents with an opportunity to connect with others, participate in programs, and to experience the campus and Worcester community.

The summer Community Director (CD) and resident advisor (RA) staff provides social programs, information on activities to do in Worcester and on-campus, as well as support residents through any questions or concerns they may have.
