First Year Residence Exchange (FYRE)
Learn more about one of MIT's most unique processes
Did you arrive for Orientation and Residence Exploration (REX) and discover a new community you would like to live in? The FYRE process offers first-year students a chance to change residence halls before classes start.
How does it work?
- The FYRE application opens at 12:00 pm on the Saturday first-year students move in and Orientation/REX begins.
- Students who wish to participate will visit their Housing Portal and complete the application with their new housing preferences.
- The application closes at 2:00 am on the Wednesday after Orientation/REX begins and students will receive their results in the afternoon so they can participate in the internal room selection process in their permanent residence hall that evening.
