Residential Dining


Five dining halls, five cook-for-yourself residences, and meal plans designed with flexibility and choice in mind.

How and when to eat is personal, so when it comes to dining, MIT offers two options:

House Dining Meal Plans
This program offers a variety of fresh cuisines, specialized cooking stations that feature recipes from around the world, and hands-on cooking events throughout the academic year in five undergraduate dining halls:

  • Baker House
  • Maseeh Hall
  • McCormick Hall
  • Next House
  • Simmons Hall

Additionally, every meal plan option includes free guest passes.

Cook-for-Yourself Communities
MIT supports students who wish to have individual control over their meals and dining schedule. Seven undergraduate residence halls, known as "cook-for-yourself" communities, are equipped with kitchens on each hallway or floor.

  • Burton Conner
  • East Campus
  • MacGregor House
  • New House
  • Random Hall
  • Senior House

Note: Students in cook-for-yourself communities may enroll in a House Dining Meal Plan.
