Living at MIT

Special Note: Graduate Housing Self-Selection

May 2, 2022 - October 31, 2022

Self-Selection is the process used to select graduate housing at MIT. During the housing selection period, prospective residents are able to view all available housing units and to select their desired unit. This process enables students to select their exact unit within their preferred building and to confirm their housing assignment in one, easy-to-navigate process.

We encourage you to explore the various on-campus housing options prior to participating in Self-Selection. This will help you identify which buildings and units you'd like to select from when reviewing the available housing options. Our FAQ page and this step-by-step Self-Selection booking guide also contain helpful information that may be of interest to you.

Please note that Self-Selection will be available between 10:00 am to 3:00 pm ET, Tuesdays and Thursdays only.  Staff will also be available during these hours to assist with answering questions, and to resolve any technical issues.  


Housing & Residential Services

At the core of the MIT residential experience is a powerful sense of community.

Who We Are

Housing & Residential Services (HRS) advances the Division of Student Life’s mission, “we are here for students,” by “enhancing the living and learning environment at MIT.”  As stewards of the spaces where student live, eat, study, socialize, recreate, and build community, HRS staff help ensure that each house is welcoming and supportive of MIT’s distinctive residential experience.

Every undergraduate and graduate house offers its own rich social network, a distinct environment and lifestyle. In partnership with Residential Education, HRS staff work collaboratively with students and their house teams and house governments, to ensure that they have the infrastructure and resources they need to build strong communities. 

HRS provides housing operations for all MIT graduate and undergraduate residential facilities, including housing assignments, repair and maintenance, communications, summer conference housing, and residential security.
