William H. Flanagan Campus Center
The Campus Center. William H. Flanagan Campus Center at Beatty Hall is a touchstone in so many ways for the Wentworth community. As one of the most public buildings on campus, it is a facility integral to the daily lives of many Wentworth constituents – students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The building is a rich blend of spaces that create not only a social hub, but a place that encourages cultural and academic engagement.

Dining Commons. Today’s students want the right food at the right price, anytime, in a convenient location. The dining hall is located on the first level overlooking the Pavilion. The food service seating location is just off the cafeteria with large and small seating for groups encouraging conversation and dining. Meal equivalency programs integrated with the “Fenway card” declining balance systems are used to better meet the needs of the 21st Century student.
Dining [late night café]. This dining area serves students and faculty who are working and studying past the regular cafeteria dining hours. It provides the WIT community a place to refresh, meet, and study.
Ideas & Buildings. A great student life building is a unique symbol of the values, aspirations, culture, history and traditions of the Institute; both in philosophy and form. The Campus Center will be constructed using 'green' building principles to be as energy efficient as possible, including natural lighting and ventilation. While much of the project will be funded through Institute’s cash reserves, we are seeking an additional $1 million to fund equipment, computers, furniture and landscaping that are important elements woven into the fabric of the campus center.
Fitness Center. Successful planning processes will address the health and wellness of the community and enable students to learn and practice lifelong behaviors to promote physical, intellectual and mental health. The newly renovated fitness center encourages personal health with the latest fitness equipment located in the ground level in a vibrant, open space.

The Space Between
Faculty & Staff Lounge. This flexible space is designed to allow maximum adaptability. Located on the second floor, the faculty meeting room is an open area with opportunity for planned and spontaneous collaboration. It is large enough to hold functions of different sizes that benefit the entire community.

Interior Space [open space]. “Pocket spaces” are small, indoor spaces that create informal places for private study, small group meetings or quite relaxation in between classes.
Exterior Space [green roof]. The green roof is just that, filled with landscaping and dispersed seating allowing for quiet, intimate seating located on the Ward side of the building.
Exterior Space [roof terrace]. Located on the quad side, the roof terrace gives students and faculty the opportunity to meet outside and enjoy a beautifully, landscaped terrace.
Exterior Space [bike storage]. With more and more students and faculty commuting to the campus by bike, the bike storage gives easy access and close proximity to safely store their vehicles of choice.
Media Wall. Located on the front façade, the large format digital display can be used for broadcasting “movie night” on the quad, WIT sporting events or live news feed of special events. With its digital capabilities, if you can imagine it, the media wall can display it.
Inspire. Engage. Recognize.
To celebrate the generosity of alumni and friends, any gift of $5,000 or more over the course of the 2 year campaign, will be honored on a commemorative donor wall.
