Graduate
Residences

The first step in making you home here at MIT is evaluating your options. You'll find a variety of choices among the residence halls available for single students, as well as two apartment buildings available for families.


Housing Options & Rates


Graduate housing rates will not increase for the 2021-2022 academic year.  In addition to rates remaining level, Housing & Residential Services (HRS) is pleased to report two new initiatives:

  • With sublicensing on hold due to the ongoing pandemic, Housing & Residential Services (HRS) has established a process for pausing rent responsibility for an extended absence from housing between June 1 and August 31, 2021; and
     
  • HRS has developed a housing referral program where graduate residents may earn $250+ in credits toward their 2021-2022 rent obligation.  


The Division of Student Life and the Office of the Vice Chancellor continue to work closely together to respond to the needs of graduate students as they navigate their MIT experience.  Please remember that the following financial resources are available to help students:
