Excited at the prospect of living on campus? We are too! The Housing Waitlist is for students who do not have a housing assignment due to missing the Housing Intent Form deadline, a change of circumstance or academic standing etc.
Please note that we expect housing opportunities through the Waitlist process will be very limited given the high volume of students interested in living on campus who have already received assignments through earlier housing processes. Given the high demand for on-campus housing, we strongly encourage you to pursue alternative housing options.
Please visit our Dates & Deadlines webpage for details regarding the application period.
As noted above, assignments through the Waitlist process may be limited due to the typical high demand for on-campus housing and we cannot predict housing availability.
We recommend that students who apply through the Waitlist process also search for off-campus housing while awaiting a housing assignment. Please visit the MIT Off-Campus website for additional information about off-campus housing opportunities and resources.
MIT wants to ensure that no student is struggling with housing security. If you are experiencing concerns about your housing situation, we encourage you to contact your S3 dean. If you have any questions about the Waitlist Application process, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team, including drop-in virtual office hours.
