Legal Liability of the University

Wentworth Institute of Technology is not legally liable for damages or loss of property, nor for failure or interruption of utilities, nor for interruption of services due to weather or acts of nature.  

Students at Wentworth are strongly encouraged to provide their own personal property loss insurance. It is recommended that parents and families review their current homeowner's insurance to see if the loss of their students' property is covered under their existing policy. If not, it is strongly encouraged that a rider is added to cover students' property while they are living in the residence hall.  

Students and families are encouraged to research possible options for personal property loss insurance. National Student Services, Inc is a popular option for our students.
