The housing process at MIT is designed to give students the most flexibility while taking into consideration logistics, availability, and a commitment to honor the greatest number of requests for on-campus housing.
How to Request a Specific Roommate/Suitemates/Apartment-mate
Request roommates by grouping together through the self-selection process
If there is a vacancy in your apartment, you may request a roommate(s) through the building-to-building transfer process in November
Gender Inclusive Housing
Gender inclusive housing is a policy that provides MIT students with the option to live in bedrooms, apartments, or suites with whomever they choose, regardless of biological sex, gender, or gender identity.
Your participation will be dependent upon the apartment/room you self-select.
Housing & Residential Services offers students the opportunity to enter the self-selection process together in groups of 2, 3, or 4 people.
All roommates interested in finding an apartment together should complete the application for group self-selection individually and request and accept each other before the application period closes in order to form a roommate group. Only roommates who are 'confirmed' may self-select together.
Any applicant may select for the group, but we suggest you designate the applicant with the earliest selection time to select the apartment for your group.
After the designated applicant selects their room first, the system will auto-assign the remaining group members to the rest of the rooms in the unit.
