Residential Pod Program
Updated December 21, 2020
MIT Housing & Residential Services (HRS) has partnered with student leaders, House Teams and staff across the Division of Student Life to develop a Residential Pod Program. As described in a recent letter from Chancellor Barnhart, Vice Chancellor Waitz and Dean Nelson, there are a number of community expectations, including those outlined on the COVID-19 student policy page, that we ask you to be mindful of. Please review the FAQ information below carefully as multiple sections may help address your question(s).
Pod Agreement Form
All students who are participating in the Residential Pod Program will be required to sign a Pod Agreement. Please see FAQ information below for further details.
Pod Start Date
IMPORTANT: While students may begin the pod formation process in late January or early February 2021, pods cannot begin to exercise pod privileges until after residents participate in Quarantine Week “Q-Week” (February 22). Additional information about pod formation will be provided to all Spring 2021 residents by their Area Director (AD).
If you have any questions specific to the Residential Pod Program, please contact your AD via email. A list of House Team staff, including the AD, is available on the Guide to Residences website. If you have general housing questions for HRS, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
