Students who would like to leave their on-campus housing assignment temporarily with the intent of returning before the end of their license agreement (July 31, 2020) must:
- Complete the Housing Intent/Checkout Form that was e-mailed to them on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 7:21 pm.
- Submit a housing termination form [no fee for cancellation before 3/31] through the 'MyHousing' Portal; AND
- Turn in their keys to ensure that billing for housing has ceased.
Students who choose this option may leave their belongings in their rooms but will not have access to their room after depositing keys until they apply to return to campus.
At this time, students who have moved out of on-campus graduate housing should plan to remain away from MIT housing until at least May 4. MIT will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and adjust this date accordingly. As the current graduate housing policy stipulates, students should expect to be required to self-quarantine for a period of two weeks in their rooms upon return to campus housing.
If you would like to move back into your 2019-2020 housing assignment after vacating due to COVID-19, and prior to the end of your license agreement (July 31, 2020), you will be required to complete the Application to Return to Housing at least five business days prior to your requested move-back date.
Please note: that this Application to Return to Housing will be reviewed in conjunction with public health guidance about when returns to campus can be reasonably approved. When you are permitted to safely return to campus, our goal is to make that return as easy as possible. If you have any questions regarding this application, or if you have an urgent need to return to campus, please contact the team at Housing & Residential Services (HRS) via e-mail at email@example.com.
