Undergraduate Housing Policy

Only registered MIT undergraduate students and transfer students are eligible for Institute housing. Spouses, children or other relatives are not eligible for housing in residence halls designated for single undergraduates. During the academic year, students who are not registered at MIT are not eligible for housing in the residence halls.

A student's eligibility for housing in approved Institute residence halls terminates at the close of his or her eighth semester registered at MIT (excluding summer terms), or upon graduation or termination of student status at MIT, whichever comes first. Terms at another institution for which a college transfer is granted MIT credit are counted towards those eight terms.

Terms on Junior Year Away, Domestic Year Away, and co-op are also counted toward those eight terms, as are any other terms during which a student is registered at MIT.
