Commuter & Off-Campus Student Life

Welcome to Commuter and Off-campus Student Life at Wentworth Institute of Technology! Our goal is to help students who commute to campus have an engaging and enriching Wentworth experience. The Center for Student Life and departments across campus offer several services, programs, and opportunities for involvement with this goal in mind.

If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback about the commuter student experience at Wentworth, email studentlife@wit.edu

Programs

  • Commuter Coffee Break: Commuters can stop the Coffee Break for a free morning pick-me-up and learn more about a new campus resource each week. 
  • Commuter Connections: Several times each semester, events specifically designed for commuter students will help you meet your classmates and enjoy a break from classes. 
  • Student Lunch & Learn: Participate a weekly conversation with some of your favorite faculty members while enjoying lunch courtesy of the Center for Student Engagement
