New House Renovation (W70)

Slated to begin in June 2017, MIT’s New House residence hall will undergo an extensive renovation.

About the Project

Constructed in 1975, New House residence hall is home to a vibrant community that encompasses nine living groups, including the cultural groups Chocolate City, French House, German House, iHouse, and Spanish House. An extensive renovation of the 41-year-old building is slated to begin in June 2017, based on a recent feasibility study conducted by the Office of Campus Planning and the MIT Capital Projects group. This renovation will include substantial infrastructure upgrades and quality of life improvements throughout all six Houses.

A phased renovation schedule will enable a portion of the residence to remain open to students during the 2017-2018 academic year.
