2015's Summer Housing is not yet open!

Tentative information for Summer Housing for 2015:


The following fees are for the entire summer housing period (~May 24, 2015 – Aug 29, 2015). Even if you are not staying for the entire period, you have to pay the whole rent.

Rent (Exact amount TBD):

  • Single: ~$2000
  • Double/triple: ~$1800

Security deposit:

  • $400

Our summer housing has fewer restrictions. You don't have to be an undergrad – or even an MIT student! We've had students from Cornell, BU, CMU, Harvard, RISD and even Bilkent University in Turkey!
