About the Community


MacGregor House ( is comprised of 312 singles and 3 doubles, distributed between the high-rise and the low-rise. Our singles are grouped into suites of either 6 or 8 people (high-rise or low-rise, respectively), with each suite having its own bathroom, kitchen, suite lounge, and a Graduate Resident Advisor (GRA). Suites are then grouped into 9 entries—extended-family-sized living units of about 30-44 people —labeled A through J (because “i” entry is imaginary, of course), with side lounges on each floor and a main lounge.


In MacGregor, there is an entry for everyone. Some entries go to all you can eat sushi, hiking, play video games, boardgames, play sports, and ski trips, go adventuring around campus, Boston, New England, and still others dress up and go out for dinner. If you choose to live in MacGregor, you’ll get to meet all the entries and pick for yourself which one you'll call home.


MacGregor has a wide array of facilities for its residents: a weight room, game room (Projector, Switch, PS4, puzzles, air hockey, ping pong, foosball, etc.), music room (equipped with guitars, drums, and a piano), and many study spaces (including group study rooms, whiteboards, library-like atmospheres, and an Athena computer cluster). Because of our kitchen facilities, it is easy to cook for yourself (or in entry cooking groups) or walk to a dining hall if you'd rather be on the meal plan. And the best part is that after a long day, you can come back to relax with your friends in the entry lounge or go to your own room to unwind.


At MacGregor, we don’t just have rooms, suites, or entries; we have families.
