Women and Gender Services

Welcome to the Margaret Cheney Room!

The Margaret Cheney Room, MIT's women's community center, was founded in 1884 in recognition of the fact that women have traditionally been denied a safe space of their own, especially in the STEM fields. In light of its founding mission, the Cheney Room exists to promote community and empower all students at MIT who experience gender-based systems of oppression. This includes (but is not limited to) transgender women, cisgender women, women-coded and/or non-binary individuals.
