Fall 2021 Building Assignments (Juniors and Seniors)

April 23, 2021

Dear Student,

Drum roll please...

We’re writing to share some exciting information— your confirmed building assignment for the 2021-2022 academic year!  We’re pleased to inform you that you have been assigned to live in:

[ Residence Hall ]

Lots (and we mean lots!) of your classmates are interested in on-campus housing this fall so it’s unlikely Housing & Residential Services (HRS) will be able to accommodate requests for building assignment changes.  

Okay, so what now?  Here’s a quick list of upcoming housing dates to keep on your radar:  

  • If you no longer require on-campus housing next year, please submit the penalty-free cancellation form in MyHousing by Monday, June 21, 2021 at 11:59 pm ET.
  • If you're an FSILG member who is planning to live in your FSILG this fall, please work with your house leadership to confirm your FSILG placement by Friday, May 28 and don’t forget to cancel your on-campus housing assignment.
  • Room assignments (coordinated at the house level) will be shared with you by HRS on Friday, May 14, 2021.

As President Reif described in an earlier message, we anticipate a ramp-up to full campus operations this fall.  If all goes well with the trajectory of the pandemic, we can expect to enjoy campus this fall without many of the COVID-era residential life restrictions.  But before we can get there,  it’s important for everyone to continue to wear face coverings, practice physical distancing, get vaccinated (if possible) and follow public health guidance to help prevent the spread of the virus—together, we’ve got this!

Keep an eye out for updates about campus life this fall as we get closer to the start of the fall semester.  Until then, check out the Fall 2021 Housing Dashboard for regular housing updates, or send us your questions via email at residence@mit.edu.
