Supplemental Housing Requests

If you have specific housing requirements in categories listed below, please submit a supplemental housing request form. The Housing Office reviews these requests with the appropriate MIT departments and decides how best to address each request.


The following types of requests require a supplemental housing form:

  • disability requests
  • medical requests
  • religious requests
  • transgender requests

Making a Request

  • Submit a Supplemental Housing Request form, and send your supporting documentation to supplementalhousing@mit.edu.

  • The earlier you make your request, the better your chances of receiving an assignment that meets your needs. Graduate students should make every effort to submit their requests before the housing allocation process.

  • Even if your request is approved, we cannot guarantee you a housing assignment that meets your needs if you do not submit your supplemental request before the deadline. In such cases, we will work with you to determine how best to meet your housing requirements.

  • Even if your supplemental request is approved, we cannot guarantee you a housing assignment. As with all housing, assignments are subject to availability. However, we will do our best to meet your needs.
