With a population of 181,000, Worcester, Massachusetts is the second largest city in New England.   Located in this vibrant and fast growing city, the Worcester Community Project Center (WCPC) is an off-campus project center offering WPI students the opportunity to become integrated with “their” community without leaving their “campus” residence. Students commute to work at the Worcester Community Project Center offices at 44 Portland Street or to their sponsoring organization in downtown Worcester.














The Printers Building, home to the WCPC, is becoming a hub for creative and innovative organizations in Worcester.  Among the building tenants are an african drumming group, makerspace, incubator space for start up organizations, several art galleries, and even a jazz radio station.














The Printers Building is located in Worcester’s “Grid District” just a block away from Worcester City Hall and the Worcester Common Oval.  There are numerous restaurants and coffee shops to explore.  Favorites among students include Addie Lee’s Soul Food, Coney Island Hot dogs, and Shawarma Palace.


























From the WCPC office space on the 7th floor (accessible by elevator) you will enjoy some of the best views in Worcester.  The office has wifi, computers, and a small kitchen area.
