The Warehouse Renewal Policy*

MIT Graduate Students

Visitors, Affiliates, Postdocs, Cross-Registered Students

  • Non-Renewable License: Must enter the Self-Selection process annually to select an on-campus housing assignment, subject to housing availability. Existing residents seeking to remain in on-campus graduate housing will be granted early access to select a unit before off-campus visitors, affiliates, postdocs and cross-registered students.
