Campus Mail 

Student mailboxes are available at Evans Way , Tudbury Hall, Edwards Hall, Rogers Hall, Baker Hall, 555 Huntington Avenue and 610 Huntington Avenue.  Students are assigned mailstop (MS) numbers along with their housing assignments.  It is important that mail be addressed properly in order to prevent loss or delivery delays.  Please help us to deliver your mail by giving the following addresses to family and friends.

Student mailing address is:
(Student's Name) MS____
Wentworth Institute of Technology
555 Huntington Ave.
Boston , MA 02115 -5520

 When using United Parcel Service (UPS), Airborne, DHL, Fed Ex Home, Federal Express, a local courier, hand delivery of United States Postal Service (USPC) which requires a signature, use this address:

(Student's Name)  MS____
Wentworth Institute of Technology
550 Huntington Ave.
Boston , MA 02115 -5998

 When students receive a package, they will be notified through their Wentworth email account. To pick up an item, students must follow the instructions in the e-mail and take their WIT identification card to the appropriate Student Mailroom or to the school switchboard in Wentworth Hall, 1st floor.  Packages will be given only to the student to whom they are addressed. If students do not pick up their packages within five business days, the packages will be returned to the sender unless the student has made other arrangements with the mailroom.

Cable TV

All residence halls are wired to provide cable TV services.   There is no charge for cable TV services.  You will need your own COAX cable to connect your TV to the cable TV wall jack. We recommend a 20 foot cable for maximum flexibility.  If you experience problems with your cable TV, contact the OIT Helpdesk at 617-989-4500. 

Meal Plan

As a resident student, you will pay for your meals initially through your housing contract. Money is then downloaded onto your ID card. Then, use your Fenway Card to pay for your meals. Just present your card to the cashier. Your account will be charged accordingly and your remaining balance will show on the cash register.

All residential students are required to select a board plan at the time that they sign the housing contract. All first year students and students who live at Baker Hall, Evans Way, or Tudbury Hall are required to purchase a full meal plan for $1160 per semester. Students who live at other residential facilities may purchase an $1160 plan, a $600 plan, or a $300 plan per semester. Meal plan dollars may be used at Beatty Cafe, the convenience store, Massachusetts College of Art cafeteria, and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences coffee shop.

Meal plan money which is left over at the end of the Fall semester is carried over to the Spring semester. Meal plan money which is left over at the end of the Spring semester may not be carried over to the Summer semester. Meal plan dollars are not refundable.

Based upon our experience, considering missed meals, weekends away from campus, etc., the full meal plan is sufficient for the average student. If you stay on campus every weekend, eat every meal, or are a large eater, you may run out of dollars as you near the end of the semester. Additional funds may be deposited.

Fenway Cash

Fenway Cash is different from your board plan money. In addition to having a board plan, you may also open a Fenway Cash account. Monies deposited in the Fenway Cash account can be used in the bookstore, vending machines, in the residence halls laundry rooms, any of the Colleges of the Fenway cafeterias and many off campus businesses.  

Students may open a Fenway Cash account by making a deposit of at least $20.00 to their Fenway Card. Fenway Cash can be used for purchases in the bookstore, laundry room, the convenience store, some vending machines, as well as in all six of the Colleges of the Fenway cafeterias and at many off campus businesses.  Balances remaining in this account may be withdrawn at anytime.

Students may open a Fenway Cash account in one of the following ways:
