Graduate
Residences

The first step in making you home here at MIT is evaluating your options. You'll find a variety of choices among the residence halls available for single students, as well as two apartment buildings available for families.


Housing Rates

The 2020-2021 housing rates align with recommendations from the 2018 Graduate Student Housing Working Group Report.  You can learn more by clicking here.

In an effort to further assist students, the Office of the Vice Chancellor also announced enhanced financial supports for graduate students with children and students in acute financial distress.
