During the summer months, MIT sets aside a limited number of rooms in on-campus residences for program and conference housing affiliated with MIT. Space is limited, and available housing is currently reserved for returning groups only.

If you are a NEW MIT-affiliated program or conference who is looking for summer housing on MIT's campus, we encourage you to contact MIT's Conference Services, a one-stop shop for conference organizers, providing professional conference planning and registration services.

If you are a current MIT student or cross-registered Wellesley student, applications for summer student housing will open in late March. 

We regret that we are unable to offer guest housing for individuals. If you will be a guest of the Institute (researcher, visiting faculty, etc.) and need housing during the summer, please visit the Sublicensing Center to explore short-term on-campus housing options, or visit for off-campus housing. Note: You will need your MIT certificates to access these sites.
