Summer Housing

We are full for the summer and are no longer accepting applications. If you applied and haven't received an email from us, it means that we were not able to accommodate you.

Housing period for Summer 2018:
Move-in date: May 27 for MIT Students and June 9 for non-MIT Students
Move-out date: August 26

Important Note: We are a student run co-op house, not the official MIT summer housing office, which is under the MIT Division of Student Life.
