Located directly on Huntington Avenue, Triple 5 is home to 364 residential students, the Resident Director and the Center for Community and Learning Partnerships. This new building is designed with 58 suites ranging in occupancy from 5 to 9 residents in single, double and triple bedrooms. Many suites boast fabulous views of the Longwood Medical area, and the downtown and Emerald Necklace areas. There are even a few rooms with a view of Fenway Park's Jumbotron. Apartments include a living room/dining room, kitchen, and one or two bathrooms depending on size. Some suites have both a dining area and a breakfast bar with stools. There are student lounges on each floor for studying, projects, programs, and recreation. Each floor's lounge has a different arrangement, some with drafting tables, small round tables or a pool table. Triple5 also features state-of-the-art laundry facility in the basement, with access to Garment Valet, and a vending area.

Although residents have a full kitchen, they are also required to have one of three meal plans offered by OHRL.  Unless otherwise noted, students in 555, 610, and the apartments will automatically be given the lowest level plan of $300 per academic semester, as noted on the Housing Agreement Contract. For more information about meal plans, Fenway Cash, and increasing/decreasing a meal plan visit the Current Students section.     

The residents are supported by 8 live-in paraprofessional Resident Assistants (RAs). It is their job to make sure that the residential experience enhances the academic experience. They create and implement educational and social events with the help of the residents in order to foster community connectedness and social networking. The RAs also do nightly rounds of the building to address any behavioral incidents. They are overseen by a live-in professional Resident Director Loren Glaser, who, in addition to supporting community development, is also responsible for the day-to-day operations of the facility and enforcing any policy violations that may occur.

As per any student residing on campus, residents of 555 are subject to Health and Safety Inspections each semester. Residents should familiarize themselves with all Housing Policies as well as items not allowed in the residence halls. For information about registering your suite as a Wet Suite, contact the Housing Office. 

Triple5 looks to its residents to provide the energy and enthusiasm for the ideal residential experience. For students that want to be involved in their residential community, the RD hires Office Assistants to help with the daily operations of the building and provide a student perspective.  RD Office Assistants are Federal Work Study positions and are typically filled during the first two weeks of each semester.  If you are eligible for Federal Work Study and are interested in working for Loren, email her at glaserl@wit.edu or visit Student Employment and Work Study for more information.

Three Semester Housing

The Apartments are also home to our Three Semester Housing Residents. Three Semester Housing residents live in their assignment for three consecutive semesters, starting in the fall.  Three semester residents are allowed to stay in their assignments during winter break and summer break.  This option is perfect for students that know they are going to live on campus for three consecutive semesters.  It's also ideal for students that wish to live on-campus during winter break.  Students that do not plan to live on campus during all three semesters should not choose the three semester housing option.  

Resident Assistants

Three talented, friendly and helpful Resident Assistants support the residents of the Louis Prang & Vancouver Apartments.  Along with their Resident Director, Kelly DeSisto, the Resident Assistants work to build a strong residential community through programming and upholding community standards.  Resident Assistants are trained student leaders and can assist students with any questions they have about Wentworth and are very knowledgeable of resources on campus.  Click here for the Apartments Resident Assistant Directory.
