  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.51 Average Rating
The campus is large enough so that you dont feel constrained but still small enough that everything you could need is withing walking distance. Its EXCELLENT for people who enjoy the city life because its practically in the middle of Boston.

With the aesthetics of a small college, but the infrastructure and impact of a large university, Wentworth Institute proves itself to be a forerunner in the collegiate battle for knowledge.
Connor from Haverhill, MA
The faculty at this institution is excellent and well versed in their areas of expertise. In addition the city area allows opportunities for growth and additional friendships at surrounding schools. The architecture studios are excellent and the fact that freshman get to experience studio culture gets two thumbs up.
Allison from West Greenwich, RI
Wentworth is a very serious school located in Boston, Massachusetts. The majority of professors at Wentworth are very genuine people, not just instructors, but friends to the students. With an ideal location, and an average class size of roughly 15 students, Wentworth is a very desirable, post-secondary institution for students looking to prepare for a successful future.
