The Benefits of Living on Campus

Campus Map

At Wentworth, we know that so much learning and growth happens in our classrooms and in our laboratories, but we also know how much learning and growth happens in our residential communities as well.  

National research shows that choosing to live on campus positively impacts a student’s overall college experience and makes it easier for them to make connections with other students and connect to the overall campus community.  

We hope you will feel at home in our residential communities where you will be close to campus facilities and amenities, have the support of your Resident Assistant and professional staff member in the Office of Housing and Residential Life, and the support of professional staff security in our residence halls. 

At Wentworth, students are guaranteed housing for all four years as long as they put in their housing down payment (formerly called deposit) by the deadline. 

We asked some current students to share their experiences living on campus, please read more about their experiences below: 

"Living on campus in the heart of Boston provides you with endless opportunities to explore, have fun, experience new things, and grow as a person. It has taught me a lot of life lessons, helped me mature, and become more responsible for myself, all while being able to utilize Wentworth's resources as needed. Without the opportunity to live on-campus, I could not see myself in the position I am today and am thankful for the opportunity to live in this wonderful city." --Matt Clark, Biomedical Engineering '21 

“The sense of community while living on campus has allowed me to meet a group of people who will be friends for life!” --Alissa Weikel, Interior Design ‘21  

“The real reason to choose on-campus housing is the community. Despite what any advertising will say, we really are a family. Moving to college is a fresh start, and it should be accompanied by new faces. Faces of new friends, colleagues, and possibly even employers. Together we form the future of education and industry, and the best way to succeed is to surround yourself with the people that will be with you on this next leg of your journey.”--Miles Macchiaroli, Computer Networking ‘21
