Guide to Residences

Welcome to the Guide to Residences

Welcome to MIT!  Each of our residence halls has their own unique community and choosing where you’d like to live is one of the most important decisions you will make during your time here. Please take the time to explore each one in this year’s Guide to Residences. This website has been produced in conjunction with the students living in the communities, and is one of the best ways to get a full picture of what it is like to live there. 

Living on campus will be one of the best experiences you have at MIT, outside of your academics, and the Division of Student Life is here to assist you in your transition to MIT, and help make that experience even better.

Please note that content on this website is updated annually during the month of May for the next academic year. The Guide to Residences website provides helpful information to first-year students and members of the MIT community. For the most up-to-date details regarding on-campus undergraduate housing, please visit the Housing & Residential Services (HRS) website,
