Our commuter student population mainly consists of two groups: traditional commuters and off-campus students.
Off-campus students are our students who have obtained their own apartment or home near campus. Off-campus students often have shared housing with roommates. This page is dedicated to resources for those renting an apartment or residing in the City of Boston.
Off-Campus Student Resources:

Finding an Apartment Off-Campus
Wentworth is most easily accessed from the Fenway/Kenmore and MIssion Hill neighborhoods. However, many students choose other neighborhoods and commute by car, bus or subway to campus. Visit the City of Boston's neighborhoods page for more detailed information.

Messages from the City of Boston
8/4/15: Recent apartment scam shared from the Boston Off-Campus Coalition and Boston Police:
“The scam is coming from a person calling themselves ‘Mary Hays,’ and she mentions that she works at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. This ‘Mary’ requests a new form of payment that Paypal has just created called ‘Paypal My Cash’ and is a pretty smart way for scammers to mix it up from the ‘wire transfer’ scam. Cleverly, there is in fact a Mary Hays that works at Dana Farber, but after just getting off the phone with her, she mentioned someone has been using her info, and that there is a case open with Boston PD currently. It was from a site called ‘Easy Roommate,’ but the scammer has been posting to many different sites to make sure they can get the most people to contact them, such as craigslist, zillow, apartments.com, etc.”
