Dear Members of the MIT Community,
Following President Reif’s recent message on July 7, we know that you have many questions about housing and other logistical questions about Fall 2020. The team at Housing & Residential Services (HRS) is currently working with partners across the Institute to support graduate students and the campus community. As soon as additional information becomes available, HRS will update our webpage and share these details with you.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. Any immediate questions about graduate housing may be directed to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Benefits of living on campus
Choosing where you'll live is a big decision. Here are a few reasons to consider living at MIT:
- The main campus and most labs are a short walk or bike ride away from our graduate residences. Not sure about the weather? There are shuttle bus stops near all of the graduate buildings to help you get from one end of campus to the other.
- Be a part of the graduate community and make lasting connections! You'll have opportunities to get involved in your residential community, as well as campus activities and all they have to offer.
- On-campus rental costs include utilities such as electricity, heat, and hot water. Internet access is also included and all of our residence halls offer wi-fi and ethernet connections.
- We're continually working with current graduate students to improve options and the housing selection process. Some of the recent changes students will benefit from include:
- One-year renewable license agreements: All new students in graduate housing will receive a one-year renewable license agreement (except the Warehouse), giving them the option to renew housing for one additional year after their first year. This should be helpful to students in MIT’s two-year academic programs.
- Couples now have the option of living in select apartments in some single student housing buildings – Sidney-Pacific, Edgerton House, and 70 Amherst Street.
