What you need to know about living on campus
To request a special housing accommodation, you must be a full-time student in good academic, judicial and financial standing with the Institute; have paid the housing down-payment and have needs that necessitate such an accommodation. You must submit a request to the Office of Housing & Residential Life stating the accommodation you are seeking and include medical documentation supporting the request. You will have to reapply for accommodations each time you go through the housing selection or assignment process. For more information, please visit the Housing Accommodations page.
Wentworth offers upper-class students three meal plan options. For the 2020-2021 academic year, meal plan rates are:
- Meal Plan A: $3,200 per academic year ($1,600 per semester)
- Meal Plan B: $1,720 per academic year ($860 per semester)
- Meal Plan C: $880 per academic year ($440 per semester) See more information at Wentworth's Campus Dining site.
- All first-year students and residents of Baker Hall or Evans Way/Tudbury are required to have Meal Plan A. Any requests to alter the meal plan will be denied.
- Second- through fourth-year students or Transfers who reside in 555, 610, Edwards/Rogers, Louis Prang/Vancouver or 525 will automatically be given Meal Plan C unless otherwise noted on their Housing Agreement.
- Meal plans are split equally between the two semesters. Any money leftover from the fall semester will be added to the spring semester balance. However, money left unused after the spring semester will be lost and will not be refunded in any way.
- To increase or decrease your meal plan, complete a meal change form. Typically, we will not make changes to meal plans after the first four weeks of the semester. You must be financially cleared by the Student Service Center to increase your meal plan.
- More information on Wentworth’s meal plans can be found at Dine on Campus.
Responsible Use of Alcohol in Residential Living Area Policy
