The Office of Housing and Residential Life (OHRL) promotes a safe and inclusive residential community that supports student success through intentionally designed programs and services.

Wentworth accommodates more than 2,200 students in 15 residential buildings that are organized into seven communities.

  • Baker Hall is a traditional-style residence hall that houses first-year students in double bedrooms, and shared-floor showers and bathrooms.  The five floors in Baker Hall provide a community atmosphere with frequent opportunities to interact with other students. The building has community lounges for group studying or socializing.
  • Evans Way Hall/Tudbury Hall is a first-year residence hall comprised of suites accommodating four to 12 students.  Each suite contains a central living room, one to two bathrooms, and two to four bedrooms. This community also has a study room, exercise room, and multi-purpose auditorium.
  • The Apartments @ 525 houses upperclass students in apartments of four to five people. Seventy percent of the bedrooms are singles, and each apartment has a common area, kitchen with a dishwasher, bathroom, and washer/dryer. The building also features a bicycle storage room and public meeting rooms.
  • 610 Huntington Avenue houses upperclass students in apartments with double bedrooms, a common area, kitchen, and bathroom. The building also features an exercise room, a large lounge, a pool room, and a meeting/study area.
  • 555 Huntington Avenue houses upperclass students in apartments ranging from four to nine students in single, double, and triple bedrooms. All apartments have a kitchen area, a common area, and bedrooms.  Each floor has a lounge/study area.
  • Edwards/Rodgers Apartments houses upperclass students in two-person studios and three-person, one-bedroom apartments. Non-studio apartments contain a kitchen and dining area, bathroom, living room, and bedroom. Studios consist of rooms comprised of a living space and bedroom. 
  • Louis Prang/Vancouver Apartments are available for upperclass students. These apartments offer a variety of living arrangements from studio apartments to multiple-person apartments. All units have kitchen and bathroom facilities, and provide an off-campus apartment feel with the convenience of living on campus. 

Each of the residential communities are coeducational and overseen by a building staff, which includes a live-in professional staff member (assistant director, resident director, and/or assistant resident director) and student resident assistants. Building staff are responsible for creating an inclusive, welcoming, educational and purposeful community that focuses on personal and social student development. If students have questions or concerns about their living situation, they are encouraged to seek the help of the resident assistants or the professional staff members who oversee their residential community.
