Guest Policy


Wentworth affords its students the opportunity to have guests on campus and the privilege to entertain guests in a room or suite, as long as the room/suitemate’s right to access, privacy, and to study and sleep free from disturbance is respected.

Wentworth defines guests as non-Wentworth students, and in the residential setting, any students who are not current residents of the building they are visiting after 8:00pm, or a non-residential student.  

Expectations include but are not limited to the following:

  1. The hosting student must accompany the guest at all times.
  2. Students bringing guests to Institute-sponsored events will be held responsible for the actions of any guest.
  3. Students are responsible for their guests’ behavior in all areas of campus including but not limited to, academic, administrative, and residential buildings.
  4. Guests must have a valid identification on them when on Wentworth property and present that identification to a Wentworth official when asked.
