Wentworth proposes to construct a Multipurpose Academic Building. The project is designed to meet the next evolution in the collegiate study of several engineering disciplines by providing modern academic space for Wentworth's existing student body and to enhance the campus experience in a new "state-of-the-art" building.

At approximately 64 feet in height and approximately 78,000 gross square feet, the Multipurpose Academic Building will contain laboratories, student learning and group meeting space, offices, and support/storage space on floors two through four, and a first-floor maker-space, manufacturing, and gathering space intended to invite the campus population to experience first-hand displays of Wentworth's engineering capabilities and teachings. The Multipurpose Academic Building will accommodate Wentworth's transition from providing engineering technology programs.

The building will be located at the center of the Wentworth campus on the eastern edge of the Academic "Quad," situated between Watson Hall and the Nelson Recreation Center on Parker Street, across from Annex Complex. The space is approximately 0.8 acres (34,000 square feet) and currently contains three outdoor tennis courts.
