Student Resources for Veterans
The Wentworth community is committed to providing support to veteran students to help make their transition easier and their academic performance more successful. The following offices, groups, and individuals can provide support and information to veteran students.
Counseling Services provides free and confidential services to all Wentworth students. Licensed professionals are on staff to speak with students about depression, anxiety, stress management, adjustment to college life, relationship concerns, substance abuse, and a variety of other issues. They are also able to refer students to outside providers if needed.
Disability Services provides support to students with disabilities. Students with physical, medical, psychiatric, learning, or other documented disabilities are welcome to schedule an appointment to speak with a staff member to discuss accommodations and other available services.
Colleges of the Fenway Veterans Student Lounge
Wentworth is a member of the Colleges of the Fenway consortium, enabling our students to access courses, programs, activities, and facilities at other member institutions. MassArt welcomes student veterans from any of the Colleges of the Fenway to enjoy its new Veterans Student Lounge in Kennedy Building Room 260m (one floor above the MassArt Café/Peet’s Coffee). This lounge offers a place to study, interact with other student veterans, or grab a cup of coffee. For more information, email Tasha Baclawski.
