Graduate and Family Housing

Graduate &
Family Housing

MIT's graduate residence halls, located within a short walk of campus, are likewise shaped by their residents to be vibrant, collaborative places that meet the distinct needs of graduate students and families. We have a variety of options available for both single students and students with families.

Benefits of living on campus 

Choosing where you'll live is a big decision. Here are a few reasons to consider living at MIT:
  • The main campus and most labs are a short walk or bike ride away from our graduate residences. Not sure about the weather? There are shuttle bus stops near all of the graduate buildings to help you get from one end of campus to the other.
  • Be a part of the graduate community and make lasting connections! You'll have opportunities to get involved in your residential community, as well as campus activities and all they have to offer. 
  • On-campus rental costs include utilities such as electricity, heat, and hot water. Internet access is also included and all of our residence halls offer wi-fi and ethernet connections.
  • We're continually working with current graduate students to improve options and the housing selection process. Some of the recent changes students will benefit from include:
    • One-year renewable license agreements: All new students in graduate housing will receive a one-year renewable license agreement (except the Warehouse), giving them the option to renew housing for one additional year after their first year. This should be helpful to students in MIT’s two-year academic programs. 
    • Couples now have the option of living in select apartments in some single student housing buildings – Sidney-Pacific, Edgerton House, and 70 Amherst Street.

Still want to consider living off campus? We can help you with that too! Visit for rental listings and resources to help you with your search.
