Ninth-Term Housing (UG)

Eligibility for residence in MIT undergraduate housing ends at the close of the eighth semester as a registered MIT student (excluding summer terms) or upon graduation or termination of MIT student status, whichever comes first.

Time spent away from the Institute counts toward those eight terms if they are still a registered MIT student. Examples include Junior Year Away, Domestic Year Away, approved transfer to another institution, or co-op programs. 

Students requesting a ninth term of housing must apply through the housing portal. All requests for housing past a student’s eighth registered term will be reviewed and approved by Housing & Residential Services.
